Sands - Information and support for partners

This section is written for partners, including fathers in same-sex or heterosexual relationships and co-mothers. Adoptive parents might also find it useful. Many of the other sections contain information that is relevant to both people in the couple. However, this section focuses more specifically on what a partner might need to know and how they might feel. In the case of adoptive parents, their support might be for the birth mother of the child that they are adopting. This chapter includes the following sections: 

  • Practical and emotional support
  • How people refer to your baby
  • Individual grief
  • Special occasions
  • Baby-related mail
  • When couples have separated
  • Talking to others
