A support option is available for bereaved families in the Launceston and surrounding areas who have
recently or some time ago experienced the heartache of a baby dying during any stage of pregnancy from conception through to birth, or any time in the first year after birth.
This is a free group that will meet on a Tuesday evening once a month from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and will be facilitated by professional counsellor and social worker Robyn McKinnon who is also a bereaved parent.
Dates for upcoming 2017 meetings are:
Due to low numbers there are no current planned meetings, however expressions of interest are encouraged so we can start a group again in the future.
We ask that no babies or children attend the group to be sensitive to each others journey and struggles.
If you are currently pregnant after a loss, please contact Robyn to discuss attending so we can make sure it is a safe place for both you and those in the group, or to consider other options if needed. It is possible in the future that a second group for those pregnant or parenting after a loss may be offered.
We appreciate you RSVP’ing to firstname.lastname@example.org or 0419544110 so we know how many to cater for at each meeting.
