"Even though I have 3 lovely grown up children, not a day has gone by without me thinking about what happened to my first baby who was stillborn and swiftly taken away." Mum
Our support is there for anyone who has experienced the death of a baby, no matter how long ago. We are contacted by people whose baby died as many as thirty or forty years ago as well as those whose baby died more recently but who are still grieving. Sometimes we are contacted by another family member – an adult sibling or twin grieving for the loss of their brother or sister.
If this applies to you, please be assured that we are here to provide support and information.
Our 31 page support booklet Long ago bereaved can be downloaded here or printed copies can be ordered from our shop. Written with the help of bereaved parents, it gives ideas on how to commemorate a baby who has died long ago, explains how to trace a baby’s grave or record of cremation, and advises how the charity can help.
If you don’t know what happened to your baby, you may want to trace your baby’s grave or cremation record. We have an information sheet Tracing a baby’s grave or cremation record to help you do so.
You may also find it helpful to read Finding Zoe. This brings together the stories of parents who wanted to trace their baby's grave and testimonials of those who have successfully done so.
