Wherever you are on your journey through grief there are warm hugs and support here for you.

 "I felt like I was the only person in the world who had a baby that had died." Mother.

If you would like to meet other bereaved parents in your local area there are groups in Lancaster, Barrow-in-Furness and Kendal.

We are very pleased to be offering support meetings once a month for bereaved parents. If you have lost your precious baby or child you are very welcome to come along and have a safe, compassionate and understanding place to share with other bereaved parents. We create a gentle and nurturing space where we will 'hold the space' for you to be able to share and connect if you wish to, or simply be, if that's what will serve you best. 

If you require any further information or would simply like to ask something to help you feel more comfortable to attend, please email Val at

I look forward to connecting with you there, love and light, Val x x x

One to One Support

If you would like to meet up with a bereaved Mother one to one this can be arranged for you.

" all I wanted was to talk to another bereaved Mother who understood " Mother.

Many of us know first hand how much comfort and support simply talking to another bereaved parent can give. The reassurance of talking to someone else who has been affected by the death of a baby or child and who is nearby to meet is invaluable. Sometimes just sitting together and sharing our hearts can be the most healing balm. Please email Val at who can arrange this for you.

Please don't feel alone with your feelings, we are here for you, just reach out and take our hand.

Much love and light, Val x x x


October 15th International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day + Global Wave of Light
We are very grateful to Scott and Claire for their generous hospitality in hosting us for our annual Remembrance Celebration. We invite you to join us for a very special evening remembering and celebrating all our babies and children gone to soon.
On this special date, we will light candles and be part of the global wave of light around the world. It will be an evening of remembering and honouring our babies, sharing and connecting with those who have travelled this path and those who help us to travel it. 
If you would like to come along, please join our event on Facebook - to help us prepare for accommodating you.

Doors open 6pm please come early to allow time for candle lighting and putting an angel on our remembrance tree in memory of your baby or child. 
There will be tea and coffee afterwards and time to talk and connect with each other.
We hope to see you there, message or email Val with any questions you may have, I will do my best to answer -

We understand that some of you may wish to join us for the Remembrance Celebration but be unable to attend - with this in mind we would like to offer you a way to include your precious babies too. If you send us their name in an email we will honour them by lighting a candle for them and speaking their name with all our babies during the ceremony.
United we honour our precious ones, together we help each other to heal.
Love and blessings, Val x x x
