We have collated the best support services available to those who have suffered the loss of a child.
Sands exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, before, during or shortly after birth, whenever this happened and for as long as they need support.
Making it to Motherhood
Friends Maya and Zinnia started a podcast series after both experience baby loss – Maya of her son, Leo, and Zinnia of her daughter, Isabelle. The podcast addresses grief and loss in a frank and honest way, and is designed to be the resource they wished they'd had when they experienced their losses. You can listen to the podcast through Apple, Spotify or Google.
Organisation aimed at supporting those who have lost someone whether that be baby, child or adult. Lots of useful links on their website for support agencies depending on region in which you are based.
Set up by Kirsty and Brent Schwegmann, Naya's wish is a non-profit charity set up after their daughter Naya was stillborn in January 2019. They are a sibling support charity, and provide sibling memory boxes for children after the death of their brother or sister.
Their sibling memory boxes contain specially selected keepsakes that offer comfort to children after their sibling dies. They also organise sibling playdates, coffee mornings for families and fundraising events.
