Unfortunately, babies also die every day and to support those parents, a special app has been developed, the LOSS app. In this app you will find information and articles, but also grief support and exercises and opportunities for contact with fellow sufferers.
Steunpunt Nova will manage the app. We are immensely proud to be part of such a large birth care project.

On July 13, 2022, Ruth van den IJssel talked about the Loss app. This interview was broadcasted on SCHIE FM, Omroep Vlaardingen and Omroep Wetering.

At the end of July 2022, Editie NL paid attention to the Loss app and at the end of 2022, the article Have an eye for lost expectations appeared in Vakblad Vroeg.

Steunpunt Nova participates in the European PATH project (PerinAtal menTal Health). This project is intended to help expectant and new parents prepare for having a child and the education that is needed. Synappz is developing various apps for this purpose, a number of which are already on the market: Zwapp+ (for pregnant women) and NeoZorg (for babies who end up in a neonatology department).

From 2019 to 2022, Maasstad Hospital is working with partners in the Netherlands, England, France and Belgium in the international PATH project to prepare parents as well as possible for the emotional rollercoaster that is parenthood. All activities within PATH are funded at European level by the Interregional 2 Seas programme. Read more about the PATH project here.
