Bereavement Support Groups

SUPPORT GROUPS

Our support groups provide parents with the opportunity to share stories, thoughts and feelings with others who have had a similar experience. Women and their partners who experience miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, stillbirth, neonatal or infant death and those who may be subsequently pregnant are all welcome to attend support groups.  Please confirm details of support groups with group leaders or the SIDS and Kids office prior to attending, as these may change. Trained parent supporters, who have experienced the death of a baby or young child, are available to visit parents or to talk with them on the phone.

SIDS and Kids

The following support groups are held at SIDS and Kids Office at Lilyfield Office from 10.00am to 12.00 noon.  Please contact our office on (02) 8585 8700 to let us know that you will be attending the group.

Please note that children are unable to be present at Child and Infant Death support group, Stillbirth and Neonatal support group and Termination support group and parents will need to make alternative arrangements for their care.
