About Us

Our local group is made up of mums and dads who have all lost little ones at various stages, either during pregnancy or soon after birth. Some have lost several years ago and others very recently. The heartache of having to say goodbye to a much loved and wanted baby, can never be truly understood unless you have been through it.

Getting involved with the group means that no one has to face this difficult journey alone and there will always be people around who understand.
