When your baby dies it can sometimes be difficult to talk with those around you about what has happened. Our helpline provides a safe place where there is someone to listen to you or just be with you when you need it.
You may want information or help in making decisions, especially in the days after your baby’s death. Our experienced helpline team can offer support and will give you time and space to talk about what you want to do.
We know it can be difficult to pick up the phone and you are welcome to email or write to us instead. Many family members, friends and health professionals also contact us for information, advice and support.
Many parents feel that although other people can sympathise, parents who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of what you are going through.
If you would like to talk to a local befriender or maybe meet with other parents we can put you in touch with a Feileacain contact in your area. You will find an informal network of support, understanding, encouragement and friendship.
