Information for study parents

This page is for parents who may have taken part in the Listening to Parents survey.

Your views are important and we would like to thank all the parents who were contacted about the survey. Though it was difficult and upsetting many parents contacted us and more than 700 parents completed the survey.

The information that parents sent back us will help us understand how care for women and families who experience such a loss may be improved. What we learn will be used by policy makers and in developing guidelines for care.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about the survey please call us on the Freephone number 0808 2524566 or email
