Support groups

We have a UK-wide network of support volunteers, who have been through the experience of pregnancy loss themselves and can offer real understanding and a listening ear.

Most offer support by telephone and some of them provide support for people with particular experiences or circumstances – e.g. ectopic pregnancy, fertility problems, or recurrent miscarriage.  Contact us for details.

Miscarriage and pregnancy loss support groups

We also have a number of monthly support groupsN.B. As of 16.3.20, we have advised all our groups to suspend face to face meetings for the time being, to minimise coronavirus infection, but some groups are meeting via Zoom – see below. winchester-support-group

These offer an opportunity to meet with others who have experienced pregnancy loss, to share thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

The thought of going to a support group can be daunting – but for many, it is actually a very positive experience.

Sara notes:

I was quite nervous of going and I was worried I might break down in front of a group of strangers. As it happened I found the session extremely helpful and I am really looking forward to going again.

For anyone who’s anxious about going to a group, give it a try. You will be in a supportive environment, often a small group and you don’t have to share unless you’re ready to. Sometimes you realise more about your own feelings by listening to others.
