Baby loss support - for dads and partners
Losing a baby is a devastating experience. After baby loss, people often focus on the person who carried the baby. But as a partner, you have experienced loss too and may also need support.
Losing a baby during pregnancy or after birth is a heartbreaking experience. We have information and support to help you during this difficult time.
These pages are for dads, partners and non-birthing parents. We also hope they will be helpful for anyone who is supporting someone through pregnancy and birth.
We use the word ‘partner’ to include:
- the partner(s), spouse or civil partner (including same-sex partners) of the mum or birthing parent
- the biological father of the child
- the co-parent(s)
- the secondary adoptive parent having a child through surrogacy.
Our language is under constant review as we understand more about our audience’s needs.
