SPRING IS A PARENT-LED CHARITY BASED IN DORSET


Everything we do is to benefit bereaved parents and relatives who experience the loss of a baby. We offer support for baby loss that occurs at any stage of pregnancy, at, or just after birth – whatever the circumstances and however long ago. Our services include: emotional and practical support at the point of loss; professional counselling; open support meetings for parents and relatives; befriending; and ways to remember our babies. We are also here to support bereaved parents through subsequent pregnancies.

We work closely with medical professionals, and others who come into contact with parents and relatives whose babies die. By sharing our experience, we help ensure bereaved parents are treated sensitively and with genuine care.

It’s a cause we are passionate about because we understand. And whilst we can’t make everything better, we believe our approach helps to make sure things aren’t worse for bereaved parents and relatives.

Baby Jac

‘We didn’t sleep that night for tears. It was the hardest decision we have ever had to make…’ My story goes back to September 2006. My husband had previously had a vasectomy reversal and I felt our chances of having our own baby together were very slim, but in April 2006 the two lines appeared…

Losing Flint

‘I remember waking up in recovery and I just felt numb…’ It was June 14th 2010 when my world fell apart and changed forever.
