Support for baby loss
SANDS WA will hold its first parent support meeting on Tuesday, September 16, for anyone grieving the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death. An estimated one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, while each year in Australia about 2500 babies are either stillborn or die shortly after birth. Sands WA president Janina Faulkner said Sands’ parent-supporters were trained volunteers who understood and empathised as they had all “been there themselves”. People interested in attending the parent support meeting should contact Sands WA on email@example.com or SANDS (1300 0 72637) before Monday, September 15.
