Our Goal is Simple
Our first SiMBA support group started in May 2011 after a request from a bereaved parent who felt there was need for a group in the area where she lived, a place where she could talk to other parents who had gone through similar. SiMBA responded to her and others needs and set up our first group.
Since then we have set up further SiMBA support groups with the help of parent volunteers who had gone through the death of a baby and also of others who wanted to give support.
We remain committed to offering support, however, for now, no support will be offered face-to-face and all our community Support Groups will cease with immediate effect until further notice.
During this time, our Closed Facebook Support Groups will continue to operate as normal. These groups are set up specifically to support those affected by the loss of a baby including a group for Men Only, Grandparents, and those who wish to share their babies’ photos. The groups are available 24 hours a day, giving families’ access as and when they need it.
For the first time ever, we're working with our wonderful Support Group Facilitators to run virtual support group sessions via Zoom. These sessions are for anyone affected by the loss of a baby click here for more detail.
