    Default What organisations and supports are available?

    My apologies for posting in the support thread, I was after recommendations of support services for those experiencing a late loss.
    I have been able to contact Heartfelt for photography support and the Pregnancy Loss Australia but am wondering if there are any services to take finger print castings for necklaces etc. Also any other suggestions for remembering these precious angels. TIA

    I can't remember the names off the top of my head, but I assure you - they're out there. I'm literally smacking my head trying to remember the names of the businesses I've come across! Argh. I'll try to remember this thread next time I see one

    SIDS & kids are not just for SIDS, they are for late loss, stillbirth, & beyond care & support aswell.
    They are a great organisation to contact aswell.
