Sands is the miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death charity. Previously a state-based organisation Sands now operate across Australia, supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby; working to improve the care bereaved parents receive by healthcare professionals and breaking the silence and taboo of baby death in today's society.
Sands volunteers offer a real sense of understanding and hope; they too have been through the devastating loss of a baby.
An estimated one in four pregnancies (93,000) ends in miscarriage in Australia each year, while approximately 2,500 babies are either stillborn or die in the first 28 days after birth. Despite the fact that the death of a baby affects so many Australians, it remains a topic that is rarely spoken about in public.
Sands provides support, information and education to bereaved families and healthcare professionals across Australia.
They provide peer to peer services for bereaved parents around the clock through their telephone support line, email, local support groups and online live chat. For information on Sands support services click here
We are here to provide vital information to bereaved parents following the death of a baby. This also includes real-life stories from other parents and our wider community.
SANDS are there to provide support and training for Healthcare Professionals and Funeral Home Directors to ensure bereaved parents are provided with appropriate care and support.
A Cut Above Byron are proud to support SANDS with the production of these personalised Memory Ladies Singlets and Unisex Tshirts in kids and adult sizes. A portion of all profits from sale of these shirts is donated directly to SANDS.
