The death of a baby is devastating to parents and their families. At the Women's Centre we have two specially designed suites in which you and your family can spend time with your baby and prepare for your return home. You will be put in touch with one of our specialist bereavement midwives who will help you to find the best way for you and your partner to cope with your loss.
It may also help to talk about your feelings with other parents who have lost a baby in a similar way. SANDS (the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) has a Gloucestershire branch, run by our midwives, and can offer you support and put you in touch with other parents who can offer friendly help. See the Sands website for more information.
