  • Whether it’s your first or subsequent loss…
  • Whether you are male or female…

  • …You’ll be welcome.

How We Can Help

Group Support Sessions

Our support group meets every first Tuesday of the month. During our sessions you will have the opportunity to meet others who have been through the loss of a baby and share your journey with people who can give you advice and support whilst you move through what can sometimes be a very overwhelming and lonely time.

One to one Support

Karen, who leads our group, has been supporting families through baby loss for over 20 years. For those who do not feel they are able to meet within the group sessions, Karen is able to offer one to one phone sessions.

Making A Difference

The Chester Miscarriage Support Group has been working with the Maternity Voices Partnership to improve the care received by those going through pregnancy and baby loss within the Countess Of Chester Hospital. We have already made huge progress and your experiences support us in ensuring the care give within our local trust is the best it can be at such a difficult time.
