Group B Strep Support is proud to support the Pregnancy & Babies Charities Network (PBCN)’s updated 2021 manifesto. The PBCN is an important partnership in the work of saving babies’ lives and helping support families.
Our Shared Aims are:
Our Shared Focus is:
- To reduce the number of babies who die during pregnancy, birth or in the early weeks of life
- To reduce morbidity in newborn babies and improve care for these babies and their parents
- To improve care throughout the path to parenthood; before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy
The Covid19 pandemic has shone a bright light on many known inequalities faced by new and expectant parents and their babies. It has emphasised that much needs to be done to reduce inequalities and improve outcomes. The PBCN’s revised manifesto outlines the work the network does as a collective, holding decision-makers to account and encouraging positive change for all families, regardless of ethnicity, income, or circumstance. As a member of the PBCN, we hope that the focus and actions highlighted in the updated manifesto make a difference.
Whilst we want you to be aware of this very important work, it may be a difficult read for some, so please pause and consider your self-care.
