The group has been set up by women who have lived experiences of loss, both in pregnancy and beyond. We have come together to create this group as we felt, during our pregnancies, that there was a gap in this type of support in Oxfordshire. We are also supported by midwives, obstetricians and others around the country doing similar work.
We aim for the meetings to be informal with some suggestions for what we might discuss. In this first meeting, we will talk about what people do and don't want from a face to face pregnancy after loss group.
We welcome everyone: pregnant women, partners, birth workers as well as people who have already given birth who might have needed the support of this group during their pregnancy. We are keen to get a wide range of views and ideas about the best format for the group and how it can best support the needs of those who have experienced loss.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to someone about any aspect of this work, before you come to the group or if you are unable to attend, please get in touch and we will aim to respond within 24 hours. You can reach us via our facebook page: facebook.com/OxfordPALS
Please circulate this information to your networks around Oxford and Oxfordshire. You never know who in your circle of friends may need this.
