Welcome to Sands South Australia

Sands South Australia offers support to all bereaved parents and relatives who have suffered the death of a baby anytime from conception through to 28 days after birth - this includes, miscarriage, newborn death, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy and genetic/medically advised termination.

Sands South Australia is a state-wide, self help voluntary organisation run by and for bereaved parents. We receive no government funding and rely heavily on fund-raising efforts and donations. Sands also exist in other States. There is a National Sands body (Sands Australia) to which States belong.

Sands South Australia is a self-help group consisting solely of bereaved parents.

Sands South Australia bring bereaved parents together in a number of ways, through a Newsletter, Support meetings, and over the telephone. Parents who are 'down the track' in their grief, and who have done some training, support those who are just starting to grieve.

Sands South Australia aims to assist parents in their grief and to help them understand the emotions that they are experiencing are normal.

Sands South Australia are able to offer assistance and guidance with regards to burial traces. Some parents, unable to find a gravesite, may be able to locate a record of their baby's stillbirth/death through the Births, Deaths and Marriages registrar.

Sands South Australia volunteers are available to speak to health professionals, welfare workers and other interested members of the community about the needs of bereaved parents.
