British Association of Perinatal Medicine

Established in 1976, BAPM improves standards of perinatal care by supporting all those involved in perinatal care to optimise their skills and knowledge, promote high quality, safe and innovative practice, encourage research, and speak out for the needs of babies and their families.

We are a membership organisation representing over 1700 professionals that work in perinatal care including neonatal and obstetric doctors, nurses, ANNPs, midwives, managers and allied health professionals. By contributing to BAPM’s work programme you can change the way perinatal care is delivered in the future.


Bliss exists to give every baby born premature or sick in the UK the best chance of survival and quality of life.

We champion their right to receive the best care by supporting families, campaigning for change and supporting professionals, and enabling life-changing research.

Bliss was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned parents who discovered that no hospital had all the equipment nor the trained staff it needed to safely care for premature and sick babies.

Determined to do something, these volunteers formed a charity to give vulnerable babies the care they deserve. 40 years later Bliss has grown into the leading UK charity for the 100,000 babies born needing neonatal care every year.
