The full resource:

Sands is a parent-run nationwide group supporting whānau/families who have experienced the death of a baby.

Most of our members are also bereaved parents. We promote awareness, as well as providing information and support for those dealing with the death of a baby during pregnancy, at birth, as a newborn or into infancy. We are non-judgemental and provide support under any circumstances. Your local Sands group may offer the following forms of support: support group meetings, telephone support, one to one visits and provide resources and information. Sands groups may also provide support and memory making items through the hospitals. We extend our sincere sympathy to you at this very sad time and invite you to make contact with us if you wish.
