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.
