Fauzia Paize, Consultant Neonatologist, Liverpool Women’s Hospital. NICU Mental Health Awareness Week Spokeswoman

I am a Consultant Neonatologist at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and mother of Jacob who was born sleeping at 23 weeks. Having felt the severe pain of baby loss, I have spent my consultant life committed to improving the provision of perinatal palliative, end of life and bereavement care and have no intention of stopping until we get there and beyond! I have implemented a North West strategy for improvement in this area, was the consultant neonatologist for the NICE end of life care for infants, children and young guideline, the Together for Short Lives The Perinatal Pathway for Babies with Palliative Care Needs and am one of the authors on the 2016 APPM formulary. I am passionate about supporting parents and staff through the traumas of neonatal intensive care and have led several initiatives on my neonatal unit to try to make the journey as tolerable as possible for all involved.  Also the mum of two young boys and would love to get through one day without yawning
