Aberdeen SANDS (Stillbirth& Neonatal Death Charity) is a local charity who provide support to bereaved families following the loss of their baby. The group is run by a committee of bereaved parents and are funded through fundraising and donations.
We provide many items to the Babyloss ward unit in Aberdeen Maternity Hospital such as memory boxes, baby clothes, toiletries, phone cards, camera etc and have recently funded the refurbishment of the Baby Room. We also fund bereavement training days for midwifes and other healthcare professionals.
We have just launched a fundraising campaign to raise £142,000 for a designated Bereavement Suite at the New Baird Family Hospital, which is due to open in 2020. This will be a private area where woman can deliver their stillborn babies and will consist of 2 en-suite rooms, a family room and a multi-purpose room. The money raised will pay for decor, furnishings, non medical equipment and supplies for the bereavement suite.
To to be able to continue our work we rely on your generosity and your help is greatly appreciated.
