Multidisciplinary antenatal and perinatal palliative care
Perinatal palliative care is a fairly new subspecialty within the areas of paediatric palliative care, neonatology, fetal medicine and obstetrics. Involving parent-centred, non-judgemental shared decision making, it aims to provide high levels of comfort and care for babies and holistic multi-disciplinary support for their families. The focus of antenatal and perinatal palliative care should be to support and enable families to spend time with their baby, make informed choices and build memories. Children’s hospices have proved extremely valuable in this area of palliative care.
