Together for change

In the UK, 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth.

The emotional impact this has is devastating and leaves parents with so many unanswered questions.

There is still silence and shame around baby loss. But if we can talk about it openly and honestly, not only can we help each other feel less alone, but we can also pave the way for greater awareness and more research to stop it happening.

This is why Tommy’s is launching a brand new campaign, ‘Together For Change’.

Becoming pregnant again

You might be eager to try again, or not quite ready to think about the future – here are some things to consider when planning your next pregnancy.

Challenging taboos

Talking about baby loss can be difficult. But its a taboo that we must break. 

Jealousy

After the loss of a much wanted baby, it is completely natural to have feelings of jealousy and you are not alone.  

Relationship changes

We all grieve differently, and this can be difficult for couples when their baby dies. 

Remembering your baby

It can be difficult to know how to remember your baby, and keep their memory present in you and your family's life.  Our mums and dads share how they remember their babies. 

Telling people

It can be so hard to say, 'I've lost a baby.' There is no right or wrong way to tell friends and family. Find the time and words that work best for you.

Understanding emotions

After the death of your baby, it is natural to feel a whole range of emotions, including struggle with grief, anxiety, shock and numbness. Our mums and dad explore how to understand and come to terms with how you feel. 

What helped

It may be hard to know what to do or say when someone close to you has lost a baby, but here are some suggestions. 

Tommy's Support Group

We are proud to launch our baby loss support group, a safe space for the baby loss community. Our forum is a secure place where anyone affected by baby loss can come together and connect as a community without fear or judgement.
