Sands Australia and The Gianna Centre Bendigo have partnered to provide a peer support group comprised of parents who have experienced the death of a baby through stillbirth, newborn death or miscarriage. If you have experienced such a loss you are very welcome to speak one on one with our Sands Australia's Bendigo facilitator and attend our monthly meetings. Peer support is important because it provides grief support from others who truly understand. This can help minimize grief-related problems for parents and families as our lives continue.
Sands Australia is grateful to all our sponsors for assisting in providing a place to meet each month, a place to hold our memorial service, meeting postage costs and printing our brochures. Bendigo businesses and the general public are most generous and we sincerely thank them.
Bendigo group members meet once a month. For details of the meeting venue, phone The Gianna Centre on 0419 496 443.
