About Sands BOP

We offer support at the time of your delivery or in the coming weeks or months. We can get together for a coffee and chat about life…. sometimes good times, sometimes bad times. We run events and occasional group support meetings.


What we do:

  • We have trained volunteers who visit Tauranga Hospital to support a parent before, during or after the birth of their baby. No one understand better what they are going through, than us who have been through it.
  • We assist the parent in their choices and options they have.
  • We provide a cuddle cot cooling system to parents of loss in Tauranga.
  • We provide resources such as blankets, clothing for baby, moses baskets, certificates of life, inkless kits and more to Tauranga Hospital.
  • Most importantly help parents CREATE MEMORIES of their precious baby and are there to support them. We supply inkless kits to help create tangable memories to keep forever. 


Part of what we love to provide to help parent through their grieving process and to assist creating memories of their baby is our care pack. The gifts in this pack have been carefully selected by Sands BOP members for local newly bereaved parents and inludes a Sands BOP Candle, 2 teddies (1 to keep and 1 for baby), a koha pack of toiletries, a Sands BOP Stone, a small gift from My Angel, Growing Memories, Tissues and information from Sands NZ and Sands BOP and a certificate of life. We raise money to be able to provide this pack free of charge to grieving families and it is something we value highly and love being able to offer. If you can help us by donating for these, Thank You!
