Charity number


Aching Arms is a national charity run by a group of bereaved parents who aim to bring comfort to others after pregnancy and baby loss. 

Our aim is to support the mental health of bereaved parents after the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or soon after by offering comfort teddy bears as gifts to bereaved parents. 

We provide Aching Arms Bears to hospitals for midwives and nurses to give to newly bereaved parents. We also reach out to parents who contact us via our website, email, Twitter and Facebook and send dedicated bears, from one family to another.

By giving the gift of a comfort teddy bear our hope is that bereaved parents will:

  • know they are not alone or forgotten
  • find comfort in holding the soft bear in times of distress
  • make contact with the support agencies we know can provide ongoing professional advice

Every bear that we give is a gift from another family in memory of their baby who died. They come with love and understanding.

With each bear is information that connects bereaved parents to UK charities that can give ongoing support to the whole family.
