Stillbirth and Neonatal Death

A Little Lifetime Foundation (formerly ISANDS) is a voluntary organisation, founded in 1983 by a group of bereaved parents whose babies died before or at birth (stillbirth) or some time after birth (neonatal death).

For support or information regarding stillbirth or neonatal death, you can visit their website here. This website includes a discussion forum for parents, families and healthcare professionals.

  • Publish and distribute the booklet “A Little Lifetime”.
  • Publish a Newsletter twice yearly with information, views and experiences of bereaved parents and families.
