National organisations are continuing to offer bereavement support to families via online and telephone services at this time:

The Honeysuckle Team run a monthly support group for anyone affected by the loss of a baby. The group is in a safe, confidential, friendly environment were you can talk openly with bereaved families who have gone through similar experiences.
The meetings are not formal counselling sessions, but a place to go and spend time with others who understand the pain of baby loss. You will also have the opportunity to meet with professionals from organisations that can offer practical support and guidance, as well as The Honeysuckle Team’s specialist bereavement midwives.
Our meetings are for adults only, due to the sensitive nature of the group children cannot attend.
The sessions are usually held on the first Tuesday of every month, 6pm-8pm within the Blair Bell Education Centre at Liverpool Women's Hospital.
There is a craft table where parents and grandparents can make remembrance gifts such as bracelets and key rings.
There is a library of books that can help all different members of the family who are dealing with the loss of a baby – this includes siblings.
If you would like to find out when the next meeting will take place please contact the team by emailing or call 0151 702 4151.
