SANDS provides support to people who are grieving for the loss of a child pre-birth or post-birth. Many parents find comfort from talking to other parents who experience the same or similar loss. SANDS coordinates support meetings at multiple locations across Queensland. Even if you are in a location where there is no meeting nearby feel free to ring to talk to someone who understands your loss.
