Who We Support

Primarily we support women faced with a poor diagnosis in pregnancy, but we also support women facing a difficult decision based on their own health issues or medical conditions.

You can contact us at whatever stage you find yourself. Whether you are still unsure what you wish to do; your loss was many years ago or last week; you are still in the process of undertaking more tests or awaiting the results of tests. Our primary goal is to provide safe, confidential and non-directive support for you along this most heart-breaking of journeys.

What We Do

The support we offer is based on the peer support model of the shared experience of our volunteers.

We are run solely by bereaved parents who wish to give a listening ear, practical advice and emotional support to others who now face a similar loss. We know what a lonely place it can be.

We offer LMC support groups in Dublin and Cork, as well as remote groups online. We are also contactable across the country by telephone or email for those who are in need of support.

Who we are

We know, from personal experience, that the most important factor in offering support to others is not about what decision you ultimately arrive at. Instead, it is in providing a truly safe space for you to explore your own feelings and to arrive at your own decision as to whether or not to continue your pregnancy.

This most heart-breaking of decision-making processes takes place alongside the beginnings of the grieving process. Which is why we believe it must be supported in a compassionate, non-directive way.
