Stories of Loss & Care of Next Infant
Today we are highlighting the incredible work of The Lullaby Trust's CONI (Care of Next Infant) programme. The Lullaby Trust works closely with the NHS to provide this service to bereaved parents.
Parents supported by the CONI scheme can choose to have a monitor, a symptom diary, Baby Check booklet, weight charts, a room thermometer, resuscitation training and a 'Baby Passport', which allows them to fast-track to a specialist baby doctor. Most importantly, they also get one-to-one contact with a CONI co-ordinator and with their health visitor, who visits them regularly.
Here, three families affected by sudden infant death share their stories of the amazing support that the CONI programme has provided to them.
Over time we would like to expand The Mumdrum Loss Section, to include stories of pregnancy loss as well as baby loss. If you have a story that you would like to share please e-mail me at [email protected]
