The Bracelet Study

Was your baby involved in a clinical trial in neonatal intensive care? Researchers are looking for bereaved parents who would talk to them about their experiences for the BRACELET Study.

Working to support bereaved families

Sands is working to support bereaved parents and families, and to press for improvements in care during pregnancy and when a baby has died.

“He was beautiful; perfect in every way, except he never took his first breath, and we never heard him cry.”
