Bereavement Midwifery Team

The Bereavement Midwifery Team is led by Suzy Hankinson and Davina Bowen who support families who experience baby loss from 18 weeks of pregnancy. The bereavement midwives co-ordinate care for women/birthing people and guide families through the formalities that arise. This could include home visits, telephone contacts and organising ongoing support from external agencies.

Suzy and Davina are also involved in supporting staff within the clinical environment to promote sensitive, patient-centred care that promotes best practice in-line with the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP).
