If you are still pregnant, coming to us for support at the time of having your twins or triplets, or shortly after the death of your babies, you may find some of this information helpful.

It is important that you receive the correct care. The latest MBRRACE report says;

  • If one or both of your babies sadly dies, you and your partner should be offered bereavement care and a referral for specialist support.
  • If one or both of your babies sadly dies, you should be given clear information about consenting to a post-mortem and how it might help you understand why they died.
  • If one or more of your babies sadly dies, a hospital review of what happened should take place, with input from all the hospitals where you and your babies received care. This is a review of whether your care was adequate for your circumstances. You should be informed and asked if you have any questions or would like to provide your perspective of your care.
