CRADLE Charity is an early pregnancy loss charity which is supported by a team of volunteers across the UK.

We raise funds for fast track counselling, provide peer support and donate CRADLE Comfort Bags filled with essential toiletries to NHS hospitals, which are then made available to women or couples receiving care, during or following pregnancy loss.

We're working to make the UK the safest place in the world to give birth, supported by people who refuse to accept that a baby's death is just 'one of those things'. The people who support us want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues. Like us, they believe every parent has the right to a healthy pregnancy and baby.
