National Maternity Support Foundation

Registered Charity Number 1118833

National Maternity Support Foundation (NMSF) is Jake's Charity. It was set up following the tragic stillbirth of Jake Canter due to the nearest hospital maternity unit being closed. NMSF's founding principles are to take a 'proactive educative approach' to maternity care occupying the 'sensible middle ground' of public opinion and to help stop these closures happening.

We are totally committed to improving maternity services and have focused our objectives on achieving this goal. The objects stated in the Declaration of Trust are:-

1) To preserve and protect the health of pregnant women and their babies by assisting in the provision of services or such other support not normally provided by statutory authorities as the trustees may from time to time determine.

2) To assist in the research into stillbirth and neonatal death for the public benefit.

These translate into our five key objectives as follows:-

1. Campaign to help keep maternity services available, accessible, safe and well resourced

2. Ensure that prospective parents have all the information needed to make informed decisions

3. Being a resource for others to obtain information and support

4. Support and promote, in partnership with other organisations, further research into stillbirth and neonatal death

5. Ensure there is adequate bereavement care available whenever it is required

To help us achieve our objectives please donate by texting NMSF29 £5 to 70070
