The Bereavement Support app has been created by Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, for parents and families who have experienced death of a baby. It aims to support and help bereaved families find answers during the most challenging of times. The app can also be used by healthcare professionals, who would like to know how best to support bereaved parents.
The app contains information and support resources for bereaved parents (heterosexual and same sex couples), family and friends, grandparents and professionals about making difficult decisions, saying goodbye to your baby, returning to work, sexual relationships after the death of a baby, another pregnancy and supporting children.
The app contains links to the Sands website where you can use find local support groups near you, helpline 0808 164 3332 firstname.lastname@example.org and ways to share your story.
We hope our app helps bereaved families know that they are not alone and that Sands is there to offer support anyone affected by the death of a baby.
