So many things can go wrong after a child dies. Everyone wants to do the best they can, but at times parents grief is heightened by difficulty in accessing information or resources. Procedures and practices need to be updated on a regular basis, unfortunately they is not always the case.
When FirstLight visit parents, and the relationship develops a union is formed and if an issue arises in relation to the care of the parents or their child such as the results of post mortems. We have a bank of professionals who will break down and explain things in a language that is understandable. Also we support and advocate for parents with inquests, courts and other issues that can arise.
