Many people say that it really helps to be able to talk about what’s happened to others who really listen and understand – especially people who’ve been through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy themselves. We call this “peer support”.
Support Group Volunteers
Our support group volunteers run monthly groups where people who have experienced pregnancy loss can meet to share their thoughts and feelings and offer each other support and friendship.
These in-person meetings are suspended at present, but many of the groups are meeting over Zoom for now.
At present, we’re not looking to establish any new support groups, but there may be opportunities to volunteer to assist an existing group. You can find out more about these groups here and get in touch with us if you feel you would like to offer to volunteer for any of them.
Please note, these roles require certain skills and experience and there is an interview process.
Telephone Support Volunteers
Our telephone support volunteers are people with personal experience of pregnancy loss who offer time to talk and a listening ear. Some of them offer support via our out-of-hours helpline and some offer support for particular experiences, such as late loss, or molar or ectopic pregnancy.
We are not currently taking on any new telephone support volunteers – we will update this page as and when new opportunities arise.
Please note, this role requires certain skills and experience and there is an interview process.
Supportive members of our online peer support spaces
Some members of our online community help to provide online support, especially on our online support forum and in our Facebook groups. This is not a formal volunteering role, but they are valued members of our online community, helping to offer support whenever they are able to.
You are warmly invited to read our guidelines on being a supportive member of the forum and/or Facebook so that you can consider if this is something you would like to do.
