Evening support meetings run from 8-10pm, usually on the 4th Thursday of the month. Bereaved parents can come as a couple, on their own, or with a friend or relative. No babies or children, but pregnant mothers are welcome, with an understanding that they are sensitive to recently bereaved parents and those for whom future pregnancies may not be possible.
Daytime meetings are usually on the 2nd Friday of the month. These are held in two parts.
The first part, 11am-12:45pm, is for bereaved parents with no babies or children present. As with the evening meetings, pregnant mothers are welcome, with an understanding that they are aware of the sensitivities of others.
The second part, from 1.15pm – 2.45pm is a “Children & Pregnancy After Loss” meeting. Parents are welcome to come to afternoon meetings once they have attended at least two of the morning or evening meetings. This is for those who wish to bring their older children, are considering another pregnancy, are already pregnant after loss, or have had another baby. Parents are welcome to attend whichever of the meetings is most suitable, and can stay for both if they would like to. Babies and children are welcome at this second part of the meeting.
All the support meetings are hosted by two befrienders, and are a confidential space. There is no obligation to talk and parents can share with others as much, or as little, of their experience as they wish to.
