Philips Footprints supports parents facing the loss of their baby or child.
We also aim is to reduce the rates of stillbirths, premature births and complications at birth and improve outcomes for Jersey babies.
Every year Philip's Footprints support up to 20 families who have tragically lost a baby or child in the Maternity Unit, Rayner Ward and Robin Ward, and in the wider community, through the provision of memory boxes. We offer peer support to families affected by the loss of a baby or child, at any gestation or age and no matter how long ago and also provide funding support to Jersey Hospice Bereavement Counselling Service.
Each year, the charity also invests in safer pregnancies by funding £10k of professional training and providing information on safer pregnancies for nearly 1,000 pregnant women, each year. They also purchase antenatal equipment for Jersey Maternity.
