Parents and Families

Every month Our Sam provides a platform for someone to talk about their own experience of baby loss. This isn’t just for bereaved parents, but also their families and friends to talk about their experience of baby loss, the challenges they faced, how they managed to find a way to cope. You don’t have to be from the UK, we would love to hear from people across the world.

If you would like to talk out loud about your experience, just email [email protected] for more information including ‘Talking out loud – Parents and Families’ in the subject box.
