Baby Loss Support

Losing your child is one of the most painful and confusing things that can happen. It shouldn't happen. You may struggle with trying to make sense of things that make no sense at all.

The emotions you go through can be indescribable. Grief is an emotional, bumpy road... for many reasons. Sands is here to help you travel a safe journey along this hard road.

Sands Bay of Plenty is run by parents like you, whos precious baby(s) have died.

The support from parents who UNDERSTAND is amazing!

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. Please check follow us on Facebook for updates and events.

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another You will find our support a place where you can:

  • Receive empathy instead of sympathy
  • Cry without feeling silly or embarrassed
  • Laugh without feeling guilty  
  • Talk without feeling judged.

If you would like to join us for a support meeting please sign up for our newsletters on the left and we will send you a notice when meetings occur or join our Facebook page .


If you would like Internet support now, Sands New Zealand has a great resource in facebook called the Sands New Zealand Bereaved Parents Chat. This group has over 1000 members who have experienced baby loss at various gestations, for a variety of reasons/causes and are at various stages of their grief journey. You are more than welcome to join the group and post your story or how you are feeling. Click Here to view this page
