Welcome to Sands Timaru
If you have found this website because your baby has recently died, we extend our heartfelt sympathies to you.
What we offer...
Sands Timaru & Districts is run by parents who have experienced the death of a child or baby. We offer empathy and understanding and support to parents of miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn, cot and infant death.
This support is based on our own experiences and by training received by Sands New Zealand. We are not counsellors, but offer a caring environment where parents can meet with others to share their experience, thoughts and feelings and grieve.
Support we offer
Support is offered by one to one support, telephone contact, group meetings, relevant reading material and videos from our library. We also publish a newsletter. We provide support packs to Jean Todd Maternity Unit, and also Miscarriage Support packs to other departments of Timaru Hospital.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU...
