Losing a baby in pregnancy can be a deeply distressing experience – but it shouldn’t have to be a lonely one. We are here to offer support and a listening ear, whether that’s over the phone, in one of our support groups, by email or online.
Here’s how to reach us:
Call our helpline Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., on 01924 200795
“I felt that I couldn’t really talk to anyone after the first few weeks and I called the helpline. I just talked and cried and the lovely lady on the phone listened without judging me or getting bored. It really helped. I wasn’t sure what I was going to say before the phone was answered but it just came out.”
E-mail us at email@example.com. We aim to reply the same or the next working day.
“Thank you SO MUCH for answering my questions honestly and openly. I haven’t been able to vocalise these worries to my midwife so your reply is just what I needed. This pregnancy is fine so far but obviously that doesn’t stop me worrying. Thank you again, for your concern and your response.”
Call one of our support volunteers – someone who has been through pregnancy loss herself/himself: our helpline staff can give you details of your nearest volunteer.
“You have given me that chance to have the conversation I really needed to have. I could not find anyone else to have it with.”
Go along to one of our support groups. You’ll find a list here.
“I came along to the group in February and I just wanted to say thank you very much for organising it. While I only came once it helped me a lot. I don’t know when I’ll be back again as I’m actually pregnant again. But I really appreciated the group existing and the option to talk to others very honestly who really understood.”
Join our online forum: a safe, secure and friendly place where you can share your thoughts, feelings and experiences with others who have been through something similar.
“I have spent hours on this forum in the past 18 months. It has given me somewhere to share my heartache and helped me realise that I was not alone at a point in my life where I felt so alienated from everyone around me. The forum gave me the opportunity to connect with people who knew how I felt.”
Join one of our Facebook groups – busy and active groups where people from across the UK and well beyond it come together to talk about their experiences.
“I cannot tell you how lost I was until I found this group it truly was like running into a big pair of open comfy safe arms where everybody understood how I felt and confirmation that I wasn’t nuts or weird. I realized my reactions were all normal that alone helped.”
