SiMBA (Simpson’s Memory Box Appeal) support groups are open to anyone who has gone through the death of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or close to the time of birth. They offer facilitated virtual support groups for those living in Scotland as well as UK-wide. The majority of their group facilitators have had training & certification from Child Bereavement UK. Their closed Facebook groups also offer 24 hour online peer support, including groups for fathers, grandparents, and for pregnancy after loss.
SiMBA also provide free memory boxes for bereaved parents, with items in that include teddies, blankets and a clay imprint kit for taking impressions of hands and feet. They also have refurbished Family Rooms in hospital units for families to spend time with their baby.
