4Louis is a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by miscarriage, or the death of a baby or child. We also work to improve the care bereaved families receive from health care and other professionals.
4Louis was founded by Louis’ family in 2009 who found that there was very little access to support and memory making following Louis being stillborn at 38-weeks’ gestation. Since then, 4Louis has grown, but parents who have experienced a miscarriage, baby or child death are still at the core of everything we do.
We provide staff with the tools and equipment to provide excellent care to these bereaved families by prompting them to offer the opportunity to capture precious memories, take special photos and give the families extra time to spend with their baby or child in a safe comfortable environment.
We have funded many study days for trusts across the UK and even funded for individual health care professionals to attend conferences, study days and courses to help improve their knowledge and approach to these families.
