Welcome to Sands Auckland Central
Sands Auckland Central Inc. is a parent run group supporting families, throughout the Auckland region, who have experienced the death of a baby at any gestation, and under any circumstance.
Pregnancy and childbirth are a time of expectation, of building dreams and planning futures. Those dreams and futures are shattered when a baby dies.
Irrespective of the parents’ circumstances, the baby’s gestational age, or how the baby died, each parent has a right to their own feelings and reactions.
Grief is unique. Everyone will react slightly differently to the death of their baby, but one common factor is the need for support.
Parents and families need support, comfort, compassion and empathy so that they can begin to learn to live with their grief.
