Did you know that 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in loss?
Chances are that you or someone close to you – your sister, friend or colleague – has experienced the heartbreak of miscarriage. It can be a very isolating time.
Deep sadness compounded by a lack of support and trusted information, leave most women feeling alone and invalidated in their grief. Women need to feel loved, cared for and that their loss matters. With your help, we can make it happen.
We produce a number of free resources that help support women throughout Australia. Your support today can help create:
- Our Miscarriage Care Kits will ensure that women have all the information they need, when they need it most – at the time they are told they have lost their much-longed-for baby – and will guide them to us for ongoing support. Their hearts may be broken but they will not walk away unsupported.
- Our Partner Advice Brochures will ensure that partners feel empowered as to what to expect and the best way for them to support the woman they love. Without forgetting of course, that our partners have also lost a baby.
- Our Peer Support Programme will ensure that women who are going through loss can have the support of a woman who has been there before, who understands and who ‘gets it’. This personalised support is vital to the emotional wellbeing of grieving women to reduce their feelings of isolation and reassure them that what they are feeling is valid.
Your support today can make a huge difference to 1 in 4 women. Please help us ensure that every woman experiencing pregnancy loss will feel loved, cared for and supported at a time when they need it most.
