We are a group of parents and who have all experienced the death of a baby either during pregnancy or soon after birth. The details of our losses vary widely, however, we all share the common experience of grieving for our children and trying to find a way to live with our loss. We are not a professional health team or counsellors but parents who know how devastating the death of a child can be.
Our aim is to offer support, understanding, comfort and most importantly, a listening ear. We are able to offer telephone support or you are very welcome to come to our support meetings. Our support meetings are very informal and held in a relaxed atmosphere. You can talk, share experiences or just listen. Our group is there for parents, their families, friends and anyone else affected by the death of a baby, no matter how long ago or recent the loss.
Your baby may have been stillborn or have died during or soon after birth. He or she might have spent some time in the neonatal unit. It may be that your baby died earlier on in your pregnancy, or that you had to make the difficult decision to end your pregnancy. We offer support whenever a baby dies, whatever the circumstances.
