Baby loss certificates

The government is  launching baby loss certificates to formally recognise the loss of a baby during pregnancy, improving support for grieving parents during this devastating experience.

  • Losing a baby during pregnancy can be a hugely traumatic experience, which is why we are launching baby loss certificates for parents who have gone through a loss of pregnancy before 24 weeks.
  • From today, parents can apply for a certificate to record the loss of their baby if they chose to do so, formally recognising their experience and ensuring they feel heard as part of our commitment to make healthcare faster, simpler and fairer.
  • The government is committed to ensuring bereaved parents feel supported through their grief and recognise their loss, as we stick with the long-term plan to deliver our Women’s Health Strategy and improve women’s healthcare and maternity support.
