In 2013 in the UK, one in every 137 babies was either stillborn or died in the first 4 weeks of life

Here in N. Ireland, over 3 babies a week are stillborn or die in the first 4 weeks of life.

We support all bereaved parents who have lost their babies, before, during or shortly after birth.

E-mail Support


A number of Sands volunteers now offer e-mail support to those affected by the death of a baby.

Please contact us at: support at sandsni dot org

This is our general inbox.  If you have a query about groups or any of our services, please get in touch.  If you wish to write to someone about your baby or are looking for support, your message will be passed on to a befriender who will then respond to you directly.
