Twin and Multiple Loss Bereavement Support

This group offers you compassionate support and understanding from other families who have shared similar experiences.

Twin and Multiple Loss Bereavement Support

This group is a place to get support and meet others who have experienced something similar. Just as carrying and bringing twins into the world is different to that of a single baby, the loss of a twin or twins and multiples also has its differences and this group enables twin and multiple parents to support each other through these challenges. You can join our Facebook closed group here and chat with others who understand.

You are welcome to join with a partner or friend, as we appreciate that attending your first meeting can be daunting. Our meetings are facilitated by a trained befriender and are relaxed and informal, allowing you the chance to have a chat or just listen and hopefully make new friends too. There is never any pressure for you to discuss your experience.

If you are planning to come to your first meeting, please feel free to get in touch to join a little earlier than the start time, if you think this would help.

“In the beginning, I was focused on all the formalities such as registering birth/death, arranging the funeral and so on but as the weeks passed by, again I felt an emptiness. I felt that I needed to escape so I decided that I would go out for a run. It helped me to process my thoughts and once I had completed my first 5k without stopping, I felt a real sense of achievement. When I first signed up for the Edinburgh Half Marathon it was for me and to give me something to focus but as the months have passed by I think it has changed to making Jenna’s life count. Although she was only with us for one day, she fought so hard to stay alive. She fought long enough so that we could spend time with her and so she could meet her big sister, Jessica. I run because my daughter was here and I want her to be proud of me and to see that we have turned this tragedy into something positive. I run because every day I see my wife, Shelley’s strength in dealing with Jenna’s passing and the help and understanding she gets from Held In Our Hearts.”
