National Maternity Support Foundation

The National Maternity Support Foundation (NMSF) is a registered charity set up following the tragic stillbirth of Jake Canter due to the nearest hospital maternity unit being closed. The 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.

The NMSF has four 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
