About Coffee Group: We are a group of parents who are subsequently pregnant, trying to become pregnant, have had another baby since our loss or who are unable to make our monthly support group meetings.
Life and parenting is different after the death of a baby and it can be hard to “gel” with parents in other groups. Some bereaved parents may find it hard to relate to other expectant or new mums/dads who do not have similar experiences. The Sands coffee group is an opportunity to relax, get to know each other and talk openly of the concerns and challenges that may face us. We enjoy the opportunity to share the joys and frustrations of parenting our living children whilst acknowledging and remembering our babies who have died. Sometimes simply being able to say our baby’s names, without worrying about the reaction of others, can be comforting.
Children and babies are welcome.
Meetings run from February – December, there is no coffee group held in January.
