Bristol Sands

Welcome to Bristol Sands

Our website is currently under construction

Bristol Sands is part of Sands, the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society. We are bereaved parents and volunteer our time to support other parents and their families, who have suffered the death of a baby before, during, or after birth.

Support is free of charge and open to all bereaved parents whatever the circumstances of your baby’s death.

If you are reading this page because your baby or babies have died, whether recently or long ago, we would like to offer our sincere condolences. We understand the feelings you may be facing. Parents’ experiences are unique but the death of a much-loved baby can bring an overwhelming grief that is deeper and lasts much longer than other people realise. Many parents say that they never knew it was possible to feel such sadness, and that their lives are shattered.

We hold monthly support meetings at

Bedminster Library,
4 St Peters Court
Bedminster Parade,

Bereavement Support
1st Thursday of every month, 8pm

This is an opportunity to talk about the loss of your baby or babies and to seek support from our Befrienders as well as other parents on a similar journey to you.

Pregnant Again Support
1st Tuesday of every month, 8pm

We know a subsequent pregnancy can be a very frightening time so we offer these meetings to talk about any concerns or worries you may have. Alternate months will also be midwife led.

If you would like to find out more about our support groups and the work we do, please contact 07970 930513. We would love to hear from you.
