Baby loss services "fragmented"

From Morning Report, 8:34 am on 4 January 2024

More lives are lost to miscarriages under 20 weeks than die on the roads - yet services for affected whanau are fragmented or even non-existent in many parts of the country.

Support groups are calling on Te Whatu Ora and the new Government to fast-track plans for a national framework to set basic standards of care and bereavement training for staff.
