Help babies have parents by their side

Right now the Government is looking at how they can better support working parents with babies receiving neonatal care. We need your help, and that of your MP, to influence them.

Evidence shows better outcomes for babies when their mums and dads are involved in providing hands-on care while they are in hospital.

Yet every year thousands of parents have to return to work when their baby is still critically ill.

By emailing your MP you can help us put pressure on the Government to provide parents with extra paid time off work for every week that their baby spends in neonatal care.
