Christmas can be unbearably difficult for anyone affected by the death of a baby. Please help us to make sure that all our bereavement support services are available to anyone one who needs them. Support the Sands Lifeline Campaign.
The death of a loved and much wanted baby is devastating at any time of the year, but perhaps even more so at Christmas. With so much focus on celebration and preparation, the thought of Christmas can be anything but a celebration for anyone whose baby has tragically died.
More than 470 babies will not be coming home this Christmas. So many families’ lives for ever changed. The effects on the parents, and grandparents, brothers and sisters, wider family members, as well as friends, colleagues and health care staff are far reaching and in so many cases life-long.
Sands understands the significance and impact of these deaths. Through our support services which includes a Helpline, Family Support packs and Memory boxes, UK-wide network of support Groups, and an online forum, we can be there to offer comfort and support.
By supporting our Lifeline at Christmas Campaign you will help to ensure that these vital services are available to anyone that may need them this December.
