Description

What you DON’T expect when you’re expecting.

This session will look at a less talked about side of birth and maternity with Chris Binnie from Baby loss charity Our Angels alongside a representative from SWAN UK (Syndromes Without A Name).

Chris is a trustee of charity Our Angels, and is driving to improve support for parents in hospitals, including more specialist midwife training, and is helping to spearhead a campaign to raise awareness. Every day in the UK 15 babies die before, during or shortly after birth, according to stillbirth and neonatal death charity SANDS. Yet this is a subject which is still not talked about.

SWAN UK (syndromes without a name) is the only dedicated support network available for families of children and young adults with undiagnosed genetic conditions in the UK. It is estimated that around 6,000 children are born every year with a syndrome without a name and undiagnosed during pregnancy. It is the aim of SWAN to have every family affected by a syndrome without a name to be able to obtain the support they need, when they need it, regardless of whether they have a diagnosis or not.

Hear a parent representative from SWAN give their account of how life after birth hasn’t gone quite how they expected.
