England – writing to your MP

Thanks so much for taking the time to write to your local MP about baby loss. Personalising and sending the email should take no longer than 10 minutes, and probably less.

Here is the Draft MP email, which has simple instructions on how to complete and send it off. We’ve asked you to add on a few details about yourself and why the issue of baby loss is important to you. You’re welcome to write your own email or send this as a letter, to make this more personal. If so, it would be great if you could still include the details of what we’re asking politicians to do, so they are receiving the same messages loud and clear!

If you would be happy to share, we’d also like to hear from you when you hear back from your local MP. You can email us details or forward your MP’s response to babyloss@sands.org.uk. It’s always helpful for us to hear how politicians have responded to our requests, as we can then work with them in future.

Thanks again for helping support Baby Loss Awareness Week, and push for better bereavement care for everyone affected by baby loss.
