About Butterfly Wings

Butterfly Wings Perinatal Bereavement Services is a registered charity that was founded by four individuals sharing a common desire to provide grief support services for families touched by the death of a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, medical termination, stillbirth, and newborn death.

 

At Butterfly Wings we aim to provide emotional support for parents and their families during and after the death of their baby through bereavement support groups, individual counselling, and yearly remembrance services.  We are also dedicated to providing emotional support for subsequent pregnancies.

 

At Butterfly Wings we are committed to achieving a greater understanding among health care professionals and within the community about the emotional impact that can result from pregnancy and infant loss.
