Care of Next Infant Programme - The Lullaby Trust

Care of Next Infant Programme - The Lullaby Trust logo

We understand that for parents who have lost a baby, particularly if their baby died suddenly and unexpectedly, having another child can be hard. It is common for parents to worry that the same thing will happen.

Working with the NHS, we run a national health-visitor led service for bereaved parents. Our Care of Next Infant (CONI) programme supports families before and after the birth of their new baby. We also fund the specialist monitoring equipment for CONI babies, which provides much-needed reassurance for anxious parents.
