Sands launches updated support book to help bereaved families

Sands' bereavement support booklets have been updated and refreshed into a new Sands Bereavement Support Book. The publication is primarily written for bereaved parents and families and covers many different subjects to help through the difficult days, weeks and months after the death of a baby.

It includes supportive information around giving birth, spending precious time as a family and making memories, information to help with funeral planning and making difficult decisions about having a post mortem, as well as working through grief and finding a "new normal" in the months ahead.

The language is inclusive of single parents and same sex couples and also includes information on supporting children and advice on returning to work after the death of a baby.

Each section is available as a downloadable chapter from the Sands website here.
