SANDS provides emotional support, comfort and practical help to anyone affected by the death of a baby during pregnancy of shortly after birth. SANDS have a network of around 100 local SANDs support groups throughout the UK. These are run by dedicated volunteers, most of whom have themselves been affected by the death of a baby. They can provide locally- based support and advice to bereaved parents and family. SANDS also offer support to professionals affected by this area.
SANDs can provide a Family Support Pack with a multitude of information leaflets to provide support and advice to bereaved parents on topics such as:
Saying goodbye to your baby
Supporting children when a baby has died
Future pregnancies after baby loss
Returning to work
Information to employees
Information for fathers and grandparents, friends and family
Phone no: tel:0808 164 3332
