Dear Mummy and Daddy,
I am so very sorry that you find yourself on this site. I’m sorry that your treasured baby was unable to stay with you for longer and hope that, in time, you will find peace in the memories you have.
I wish you had no need for our services, but I hope very much that you find some information here which will help you.
I have experienced an early miscarriage and a stillbirth –my son died during labour. The information within this section is written from the perspective of a stillbirth. Some of the suggestions may not be suitable for some situations. If this is the case I have added an information box with alternatives.
You’ll find information to guide and support you if you have just discovered that your baby has sadly died. Simply navigate using to the section which most suits your situation.
The information in this section is gathered and made available with the intention of providing support to you, after you have discovered your baby has died. I hope that it helps you to understand what may happen in the days and weeks to come. You may find that reading the information and ideas contained within this section enables you to make plans and discuss them with your family.
I wish that I could make this experience easier for you, or wave a magic wand so that it didn’t happen at all. Unfortunately I can’t and so many parents face this news every single day. I share my experience and the things which helped me, as well as ideas gained from training midwives and working with other baby loss parents for many years.
If you have arrived at this page after you have given birth to your stillborn baby, you might like to begin in the Funeral Planning Section, or the Healing Section.
