US Chesed recently launched a Stillbirth Support Group (SSG) to offer help and support to men and women who have suffered a stillborn birth, either recently or some time in the past. We know how complex and painful the circumstances surrounding a stillbirth can be, not only for parents but also for other family members, and in some cases there can be a real benefit in being able to talk to someone other than family and friends. The support given by the SSG is completely confidential and all discussions are held on a one to one basis.
If you or anyone you know, has suffered a stillbirth, and are still struggling to come to terms with the loss, the SSG may be able to assist. What we will be providing is not a counselling service, but befriending by volunteers who have been trained in offering this type of support. If we are not able to offer the kind of service you are looking for, the SSG are able to provide you with the names and contact details of specialist organisations who may be able to help you.
If you would like to speak to a member of the SSG, please call 020 8343 5651 and leave your name and telephone number on the 24-hour answer phone that we have set up. We will return your call as quickly as possible.
