Seventeen babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day in the UK. The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Association charity (SANDS) want to make sure that as few families as possible experience this terrible loss. They offer care, not only for people who have lost babies after they were born, but for woman who have miscarried too.

During June SANDS looks at making a difference by raising money to help provide more care and research that will look into ways to prevent neonatal deaths. More information can be found here.
