A Little Lifetime Foundation Parent Support
It is natural to want to talk about your baby. You probably think about him or her all the time and continuously relive the circumstances of his or her birth and death. Your grief is very intense and you experience so many different emotions at the same time that you may feel unable to cope. These feelings are normal and it helps to express them.

It can be particularly helpful to talk to someone else who has had a baby who has died. You can do so by contacting A Little Lifetime Support Team. All the members of the Support Team are trained and are parents who themselves have had a baby who died. They can be reached from any location in the country by leaving a message on the A Little Lifetime Support phone line.

Parents Support Meetings
We also organise Parent Support Meetings. These are informal meetings where parents can talk to each other, facilitated by a trained member of the Support Team. Many parents find that they feel less isolated and alone after meeting other parents who are going through similar feelings of grief.

Sometimes parents say that they would be unable to speak at a meeting and we always say that no one should feel under pressure to share their experience. Sometimes just listening to other parents sharing their stories can help us to identify thoughts and feelings we may be having ourselves.
