Wherever you are on your journey through grief there are warm hugs and support here for you.
"I felt like I was the only person in the world who had a baby that had died." Mother.
If you would like to meet other bereaved parents in your local area there are groups in Lancaster, Barrow-in-Furness and Kendal.
We are very pleased to be offering support meetings once a month for bereaved parents. If you have lost your precious baby or child you are very welcome to come along and have a safe, compassionate and understanding place to share with other bereaved parents. We create a gentle and nurturing space where we will 'hold the space' for you to be able to share and connect if you wish to, or simply be, if that's what will serve you best.
If you require any further information or would simply like to ask something to help you feel more comfortable to attend, please email Val at email@example.com
I look forward to connecting with you there, love and light, Val x x x

One to One Support
If you would like to meet up with a bereaved Mother one to one this can be arranged for you.
" all I wanted was to talk to another bereaved Mother who understood " Mother.
Many of us know first hand how much comfort and support simply talking to another bereaved parent can give. The reassurance of talking to someone else who has been affected by the death of a baby or child and who is nearby to meet is invaluable. Sometimes just sitting together and sharing our hearts can be the most healing balm. Please email Val at email@example.com who can arrange this for you.
Please don't feel alone with your feelings, we are here for you, just reach out and take our hand.
Much love and light, Val x x x
