The Sands Forum exists to offer you a safe and supportive place where the death of a baby can be acknowledged, understood and to help lessen the isolation that many people feel following this devastating experience.

The death of a baby can happen to any one of us. A baby may have been stillborn or died during or soon after birth. He or she may have spent some time in a special care baby unit. It may be that the baby died at an earlier stage of pregnancy (late miscarriage) or that his or her parents had to make the difficult decision to end the pregnancy. Sands, and the Sands Forum offers support whenever a baby dies. 


As well as supporting mothers, fathers and same sex partners, the Forum is available to other members of the family, including grandparents and siblings (over the age of 14). Many other people may be touched by a baby’s death, including friends, colleagues and health care staff. The Sands Forum is open to anyone affected by the death of a baby, irrespective of their gender, race, ethnic origin, disability, age, nationality, national origin, sexuality, religion or belief, marital status and social class.
