It’s nearly Christmas, as well as the Jewish festival of Chanukah. A time for celebrating, a time for family and friends and, very often, a time where children and babies are in the forefront of people’s minds.
Some of you will find this a very dark time and might struggle to get through the next few days. Some of you will be deeply thankful for the baby or babies you now have. Either way, many of you will be thinking about your lost babies, the children who might have been.
Please remember that we are here for you.
- Even when we close for the holidays (Mon 26 and Tues 27 December; and Mon 2 January) we have a small group of volunteers who are happy to offer telephone support. (Call 01924 200799 to get their contact details.)
- If you join our support forum by 3 p.m. on 23 Dec, or between 28 and 30 Dec, you can post and read messages throughout the breaks, thanks to our volunteer moderators.
- You can use our Facebook page and groups at any time to share your thoughts and feelings with others.
- You may want to create a message to your baby or babies on our Lights of Love tree.
You may also feel that this is a perfect time to support the Miscarriage Association, to help us to be there for others who have lost a baby in pregnancy. Please consider making a donation and/or visit our get involved section to see how you can help to make a difference.
Here’s hoping you have a gentle and peaceful holiday season and a happy 2017.
From all of us at the Miscarriage Association.
