Bereavement 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.
