Support booklet launched for bereaved grandparents

Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, has launched a free support booklet for bereaved grandparents.

The booklet – “Information and support for grandparents: When a grandchild dies before, during or shortly after birth” – is described as a “much-needed guide” by the charity.

The 36-page booklet covers topics such as the physical and emotional reactions to grief, dealing with other people’s reactions to the tragic news and the choices available to create mementoes and keepsakes of the baby.

It also includes information about how the parents might be feeling, which grandparents many find useful, as well as the importance of the grandparents finding support for themselves.
