A Little Lifetime Foundation (formerly ISANDS) is a voluntary organisation based in Ireland, founded by a group of bereaved parents whose babies died before or at birth (stillbirth) or some time after birth (neonatal death) and for parents who receive a diagnosis of fatal foetal abnormality in pregnancy.
Their website offers support and information not only for families facing or coping with this tragedy but also for anyone who comes in contact with these families. They produce and distribute a booklet called A Little Lifetime to all maternity hospitals and units in the Republic of Ireland. All the members of the Support Team are trained and are parents who themselves have had a baby who died. They can be reached from any location in the country by leaving a message on the ISANDS Support phone line. Parent Support Meetings are also organised.
Please note the Parent Support Meetings will be held via Zoom until further notice.
All of our services are provided free of charge to parents.
