The Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network (PBCN) is committed to improving outcomes and reducing inequalities for new and expectant parents and their babies.

They work to:

  1. Make the UK the safest place in the world in which to have a baby, regardless of ethnicity, income, or circumstances.
  2. Give all sick and premature babies the best chance of survival and quality of life.
  3. Provide every family with the bereavement care they need after pregnancy or baby loss.

In recent months, the Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network has taken time to reflect upon, review, and revise their manifesto. We at the Lullaby Trust are proud to put our name to this important partnership working.

The Covid19 pandemic has shone a bright light on many known inequalities faced by new and expectant parents and their babies. It has emphasised that much needs to be done to reduce inequalities and improve outcomes.  The PBCN’s revised manifesto outlines the work the network does as a collective, holding decision-makers to account and encouraging positive change for all families, regardless of ethnicity, income, or circumstance. As a member of the PBCN, we are hopeful that the focus and actions highlighted in the updated manifesto can make a difference.

Whilst we want you to be aware of this very important work, it may be a difficult read for some, so please pause and consider your self-care.
