Our support systems

HOW WE OFFER SUPPORT

We are so sorry that your baby has died. We understand how devastating it is when a baby dies (whether during pregnancy, during or after birth) as many of us have been through the experience ourselves.

We know that everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Each person needs different types of support and this can change over time.  Some people may be happy to talk, others might take comfort from quietly reading about others experiences, while some may prefer to meet face to face and share their experience. We have several options for you.

TELEPHONE HOTLINE

Sometimes all one needs is someone to talk to. We are here. Call and we will listen and we will understand.

SUPPORT GROUPS

  1. PHYSICAL SUPPORT GROUPS

We have group sessions where complete strangers have walked away friends. The groups are small (not more than 10 men/women) which allows people to talk freely. We try our best to create a safe environment for you to heal and grow.

The support groups are set up in a way the men/women meet on Saturdays for a total of 5 sessions. A trained counselor attends the sessions to offer advice on grieving and healing after loss. During the last session we light candles to celebrate your baby(ies)

2. WHATSAPP SUPPORT GROUPS

We understand that some people are not available for the physical groups for one reason or other. We therefore have WhatsApp groups still run by trained counselors. The groups are divided into 3: early miscarriages, late miscarriages/stillbirth and infant loss. If you would like to join these support groups please click here and fill in this form: http://www.stillamum.com/support-registration/ This will allow us to put you in the most appropriate group.

ONLINE FORUMS AND EMAIL SUPPORT

I have had chats on the Still A Mum Facebook page and on Twitter too. Whoever I spoke to was comforting and very understanding. And even when I went quiet they checked on me!”  — Mum

We know it is not always easy to talk and that some people prefer to contact us by email. You may not be ready for a one on one encounter but we will give you our undivided attention even on email.
