"We go to the monthly meetings and I have found these so helpful. It's a place you can go to honestly talk or just listen if you would rather. I find the time to talk and think about my baby really special."
We also run a support group on the first Tuesday of each month, currently this is help via Zoom. We discuss a wide range of issues our members have experienced as a result of their individual losses and try to give each other advice and support about how to move forward with our lives regardless of when our babies died.
If you feel like you would like to attend our support group, you would be welcomed into a supportive family of understanding members. Contact us to find out more information.
We currently run three Facebook pages to support our members; a public page, a closed group where people post their baby loss stories and support each other through the rollercoaster of emotions that inevitably comes with grief, as well as a dads only closed Facebook group, where men can support each other through their grief.

Sophia - Pregnancy Support Group was founded in early 2016 by the parents of baby Sophia, who was born sleeping on 10th December 2015, as they wanted to create a group to help support other bereaved parents and their family members. Two midwives and other bereaved parents worked hard to establish Sophia - Pregnancy Loss Support group.
The bereavement group grew from strength to strength and in January 2017, Sophia - Pregnancy Loss Support became a registered charity (Registered Charity Number: 1171082). All money we raise is used to comfort and support people who have suffered the loss of a baby during pregnancy.
