CRADLE is a national charity that provides pregnancy loss and pregnancy choices services to the NHS, and support to anyone who needs support.


And this podcast is just another way to give that support. We'll be hearing some incredibly brave stories as we explore different issues and topics surrounding when a baby dies, or when difficult decisions have been made about a pregnancy.


We will hear from the healthcare professionals who have set up their own CRADLE services, Employers who have taken CRADLE into the work place, and from from family and friends.


And we'll hear from you, your story, because the good thing about being together…... is knowing you are not alone.


We're probably gonna cry, but there will be laughter, and more importantly there will be support.


Hosted by TV & radio presenter Kay Kay Crewdson through her own experience of loss
