I can’t help but wanted to pass on my condolences. My still was 23 weeks and it is devastating. My thoughts are with you flowers

22beach I am so sorry for your loss. My daughter was stillborn at 32 weeks in January. The pain is like no other. I attend Sands meetings in my area and lots of dads come, sometimes with their wives and sometimes without. There are more mums though I must admit. I hope you can find similar support locally to you. There are also smaller charities that offer support in my area (Berkshire) like Reading Lifeline. There may be similar close to you but I expect Sands will be able to point you in the right direction. Wishing you all the best at this awful time.

I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter.

Have you contacted Sands? They are a fantastic charity and you can receive counselling through them when you’re ready.

They have a phone line so you can speak to them if you’re not ready to speak face to face.

Simba have meetings where they light candles for the children who have passed away, they also have memorial trees all over the UK if you wanted to get your daughters name engraved on a metal leaf and hung on the tree of tranquility.

Remember to keep talking, everyone will want to hear about your daughter.

Have you contacted CDH uk. They are amazing. My daughter was born with the condition and has survived so I can’t 100% know what you are going through. But I know the charity are really helpful.

My son was stillborn at 27 weeks two years ago. Sands is a lifesaver. Men attend mine too. I would definitely recommend. So sorry for your loss.
