No meeting in December  

The meetings are very informal and you can talk, share experiences or just listen.


                                  'I feel safe, I am with people who understand'

                                  'I can talk about my baby and people listen to me'

                                  'Knowing that I am not alone helps'


We understand that you may find it difficult to come to a meeting, or you may feel that meetings 'aren't for you' that's ok, just call us.  We are here for you.

Next Pregnancy Support Meetings - We recognise that the next pregnancy can be a very stressful and traumatic time and much reassurance and support is needed for some parents.

These meetings will provide support and reassurance to those already pregnant following the death of a baby.  It will also give you the chance to meet other parents who are pregnant again  at the same time for supportive friendships. 

We have arranged to have midwife support at these meetings which will allow you to talk about the topics and issues that are of concern to you.

There will also be the opportunity for parents to have discussions with a Sands Befriender if they wish to.
