HRH The Duchess of Gloucester, Patron of The Lullaby Trust, Will Join 250 Health Visitors Who Have Helped Support Bereaved Parents Over the Last 25 Years

(PRWEB) November 27, 2013

The reception is to mark the 25th anniversary of The Lullaby Trust’s CONI program and to recognize the hard work of these highly experienced health visitors who offer this service throughout the country. CONI provides support to families who are looking forward to a new arrival, but who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a baby in the past.

Francine Bates OBE, Chief Executive of The Lullaby Trust said, “We were delighted to have our Patron, The Duchess of Gloucester to share this special occasion with us. The programme is funded entirely through donations and she has helped enormously to raise public awareness of this unique and vital service.

“Research shows that CONI prevents subsequent deaths and without the support it provides for some of the UK’s most vulnerable babies it would be impossible to achieve The Lullaby Trust’s goal to halve the rate of SIDS by 2020.

“I would also like to thank our valued industry supporter, The Gro Company, and in particular the Company’s Managing Director, Christian Jones, for making this event possible, with their continued support.”

Through CONI, The Lullaby Trust provides funds for specialist-monitoring equipment and provides health advice and reassurance along the way until the new baby is six months old. This programme has supported over 20,000 families in the last 25 years.
Alison Waite, National CONI Co-ordinator, added: “We are so very grateful to the CONI health visitors for giving us their time and support over the years. The CONI guests are so excited for 3rd December – The Duchess of Gloucester’s presence recognises their contribution to the CONI programme.

Notes to Editors:
About The Lullaby Trust

The Lullaby Trust provides specialist support for bereaved families and promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep.

Working with the NHS we run a national, health-visitor led service for bereaved parents, Care of Next Infant (CONI) programme, which supports families before and after the birth of their new baby.

We are committed to commissioning new research projects to understand much more about what causes these tragic deaths and how we can prevent them.

The Lullaby Trust also runs an information line for parents and professionals (0808 802 6869) and a dedicated support line for bereaved families (0808 802 6868). Both are free to call from landlines and mobiles.

Advice including, factsheets and the latest research can be found at

We campaign tirelessly, lobbying government to keep sudden infant death on the public health agenda.
