When a child dies: A loss like no other

No-one expects their child to die before them. It is out of the natural order of things and something that should never happen. For some the tragedy feels too overwhelming. They go through the motions, unable to rebuild their lives around their grief. We believe that with the right help and support, lives can slowly be rebuilt. This information sheet includes quotes from bereaved parents who attend child loss groups. It contains information on ways that might help you start to make small steps towards learning to live a new life, one that will continue to have a place for your child, but a different place.
