Still Parents Teesside
Who we are
Thank you so much for visiting our profile page. Still Parents Teesside: Baby Bereavement Support is a local, volunteer-run charity that provides support for anyone affected by the death of a baby during pregnancy, at birth, or in the first few weeks of life.
We provide a monthly support group for parents, grandparents, family and friends, as well as online support (via email and Facebook). People can come along and talk about their baby or any aspect of their grief, or simply sit and listen to others in the same position.
This Charity is run by three local bereaved parents, who understand how isolating losing a baby can be, and who want to provide a safe space for people to get support. We link with local healthcare professionals such as maternity and neonatal staff, GP surgeries, and health visitors, who can help identify local parents who may require support and signpost them to us. We also wish to help identify gaps in bereavement support and work with other organisations to help meet these needs.
Our name comes from the fact that ‘our babies died but they are still loved, and we are still parents.’
Thank you very much for considering donating to us; it means a lot.
