These new standards clearly define the care parents and families can expect to receive following a pregnancy loss or perinatal death, and will be implemented and applied across the health service in all appropriate hospitals and settings. The standards have been developed in response to recommendations in both the HSE’s Investigation report in to the death of Savita Halappanavar and the report of Dr. Peter Boylan following his review of maternity cases at Portlaoise Hospital.
