Collaboration

We are proud to collaborate with a number of organisations who are working to prevent babies dying before, during or after birth and providing support for bereaved families.

Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network

Kit Tarka Foundation is proud to be a member of the Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network, a group of UK charities whose focus includes one or more of the following:

  • To reduce the number of babies who die during pregnancy, birth or in the early weeks of life

  • To reduce morbidity in newborn babies and improve care for these babies and their parents

  • To improve care throughout the path to parenthood; before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy

We have developed a manifesto, which sets out our three main aims:

  • Make the UK the safest place in the world in which to have a baby, regardless of ethnicity, income or circumstances.

  • Give all sick and premature babies the best chance of survival and quality of life.

  • Provide every family with the bereavement care they need after pregnancy or baby loss.
