Sands Queensland provides support, information, education and advocacy for parents and families who experience the death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn death or other pregnancy losses.
At Sands there are people who understand because they too have been through this experience.
Sands Queensland also works with health care and other professional groups to ensure that families receive the support and information they need.
Sands Queensland was formed in the early 1980s by a group of bereaved parents who recognised that the emotions they experienced after the death of their baby were common to many parents and that supporting one another helped them on their grief journey.
Sands Queensland supports parents whose baby has died at any stage during pregnancy or the newborn period. The death of a baby is a devastating experience whenever it occurs and Sands does not distinguish between losses. Every parent’s experience is individual, and every circumstance is unique. Yet there are many core emotions that seem to be common to parents whose baby has died.
Sands Queensland supports parents no matter how long since the death of their baby. Whether newly bereaved or whether your baby died some years ago, we are here to help you find the support and information you need.
The Sands Queensland office is in Brisbane, but has supporters across the State and Sands groups in regional centres, including Townsville and Cairns.
Sands Queensland support services are available 24 hours a day, for anyone affected by the death of a baby.
