SANDS - Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity
We offer an extensive range of support services for anyone affected by the death of a baby including:
- National Helpline: 020 7436 5881 - or email - where bereaved parents, family members and health professionals can talk in confidence to an experienced support worker. The helpline service currently receives over 200 calls a week and sends out 130 bereavement information packs a week.
- Support Groups: 020 7436 7940 for contact details, which are run by and for bereaved parents at a local level in many parts of the UK.
- Information resources: 020 7436 7940 which includes publications and leaflets on the many emotional and practical issues which parents face.
- Our website consists of wide-ranging and separate sections for bereaved parents, for Sands Groups, and for health and social care professionals, together with detailed information on how the services that Sands offers can be accessed.
We also work closely with health professionals to improve the care that parents receive in hospitals. No one can take away the pain parents feel when their baby dies but sensitive, supportive care in hospital can. The Helpline is for anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby and wants to talk to someone about their experience.
