UK Maternity Appeal
What is Baby Lifeline?
Baby Lifeline came into being in 1981 after Judy Ledger, now Chief
Executive, suffered the personal loss of three premature babies. It is a
unique national charity supporting the care of pregnant
women and new born babies all over the UK and worldwide.
From the foundation of Baby Lifeline in 1981 over £9 million has been raised which has helped to purchase vital equipment for maternity and special care baby units. It is an unfortunate fact that even with the advances in medical care and science today, more than 8,500 babies still die at or around the time of birth.
So there is a lot more work to be done.
What does Baby Lifeline do?
Baby Lifeline works with leading health and legal professionals to identify and prioritise equipment needs for the maternity sector, as well as cutting edge training for continuing professional development - to improve care already given.
Equipment ranges from small items such as digital weighing scales for babies to major pieces of technology such as incubators, scanners and various monitoring equipment.
And that’s not all, on top of this Baby Lifeline, with the help of
leading experts in the maternal health field, has produced a series of
nine interactive videos, the B.I.R.T.H. series which has been of great
benefit to maternity units all over the U.K. The series has received
endorsement from the Royal College of Midwives as well as The Royal
College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists.
