Abstract: This document has been derived from a systematic review of the available evidence regarding the nature of meaningful and, or appropriate non-pharmacological, psychosocial supportive care for families to improve their psychological well-being following stillbirth., This document provides evidence-based guidance for healthcare professionals providing care for parents during and immediately after birth. There are a number of critical factors centred around ensuring that parents are sensitively and supportively informed and prepared to make decisions about seeing and holding their baby. If parents do decide to see their baby, healthcare professionals can provide valuable advice and guidance to support parents in deciding how they would like to spend time with their baby, what they might like to do and especially if they would like to collect any mementos. Sensitivity, empathy, validation of parents, emotions, provision of clear, understandable information and consideration of the timing of this information are still important at this point in the care pathway.
