Our midwife-moderated closed Facebook groups are a place for people affected by baby loss to share their experiences in a safe, online environment. For many, opening up and sharing experiences can be an important part of the grieving process after the loss of a baby.
If you've experienced baby loss or pregnancy complications you can share your story in Facebook groups - Tommy's Baby Loss Support Group and Tommy's Parenting After Loss Support Group, or on Instagram by tagging @tommys or @tommys_pregnancy hub.
“Reading so many women’s stories made me feel like more than a bad statistic. I felt normal; my babies’ stories are normal. I want them to be known. I hate hiding them away in my memory.”
Catherine, who has experienced 4 miscarriages
Stories for our website
Real-life stories help to break the silence that surrounds baby loss. At Tommy’s, we share a wide range of stories reflecting the experiences of families across the country. We also use stories to support our research publications, fundraising projects and charity campaigns.
On this page, we will share upcoming story opportunities.
