Other support


Many Sands members have found that collecting and creating keepsakes can provide a lot of comfort and is a lasting way to remember your baby. Here are some of the ideas we have found useful.


Some Sands members have recommended books that they found helpful. 


You are not alone in your experience - read the personal stories of other bereaved parents.
