The British Association of Perinatal Medicine’s (BAPM Framework for Practice, Lactation and Loss: Management of Lactation Following the Death of a Baby, is written for professionals working with parents and families. It provides information and guidance in supporting mothers around lactation and loss, where a baby or child is not expected to survive, or has died.

The aim of this framework is to review lactation and loss and to utilise this knowledge to guide support for mothers and parents to make the choices that best suit their individual circumstances. This includes options around both cessation and continuation of lactation following the death of a baby.
