Te Whatu Ora commissioned Whakarongorau Aotearoa to work with communities, service providers and whānau experiencing perinatal loss of a pēpi (baby) to understand the current experiences, inconsistencies, and challenges for both parents and support providers.


The aim of the environmental scan is to identify what is currently working well, service and support gaps, the inequities that exist and who may be impacted. The findings of this report will inform the development of a national bereavement care pathway.
