How we can help

The Miscarriage Association provides support and information to anyone affected by pregnancy loss, through our:

Phone and email helpline
Support network
Website and printable leaflets
Forum
Social media profiles

We will always try to be of help, but are unable to provide professional counselling. There’s more information on how to find a counsellor on our ‘Counselling after a miscarriage’ page.

Our phone and email helpline

Our staffed pregnancy loss helpline is available from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to provide support on all aspects of pregnancy loss. Call us on 01924 200799.

We can also provide information and offer support via email. You can reach us at info@miscarriageassociation.org.uk. We aim to reply the same or the next working day.
