Butterfly Project: supporting parents who have lost a baby from a multiple pregnancy

Infant readers will be familiar with two previous articles describing the process that healthcare professionals and research staff at Newcastle Neonatal Service and Newcastle University have used to develop guidelines and improve support for parents who have suffered the loss of a baby from a multiple (eg twin) pregnancy. This Focus article looks at the development of the Butterfly Project, discussing recent feedback from parents, support groups and health professionals and reviewing the resources that are available for staff and parents in the area of reproductive loss.
