Jane Lockton, an honours student in psychology at the University of Adelaide is currently researching bereaved grandparents' experiences of support after pregnancy loss.
The university has approached Sands to assist in the recruitment of participants for this ethics-approved study.
Grandparents who've had a child experience pregnancy loss between 6 months and 5 years ago are eligible to take part.
Participants can be based anywhere in Australia and will be asked to take part in a telephone interview, at their convenience, to describe their experiences of support at that time.
Sands' General Manager Improving Bereavement Care, Anita Guyett, welcomed the university's research.
"Although Sands is not involved in the collection of data, interviews or the research itself, we see great value in the potential outcomes of this research," she explained.
"The study will contribute to the literature around how we can best support grandparents who've had a child experience a pregnancy loss."
