Our gentlest congratulations if you or your partner find yourself here pregnant after loss, or are ready to try to conceive again. These sessions are here to welcome you into a supportive and understanding group – led by Zephyr’s volunteers Louise and Natalie, and joined by visiting practitioners who offer lots of nurturing and supportive antenatal activities and care. Members of HOPE and the volunteer team all support each other within a safe and understanding space. Becoming pregnant after loss can feel like a real roller coaster of mixed emotions.

HOPE group meet ups always have a focus activity or guest speaker. Every session gives you the chance to chat to one another, sharing in hopeful and positive stories, as well as giving you the opportunity to gently connect to yours or your partner’s pregnancy. Sessions include relaxation techniques, mindfulness, yoga, managing anxiety, birth planning, creative activities and professional support from midwives and other healthcare professionals also.

You can find out more about the meet ups on HOPE’s public Facebook page, you may also wish to join HOPE’s private Facebook page for those TTC or pregnant after loss.

A little more about the history of HOPE

HOPE was born in 2017, when a group of Zephyr’s volunteers decided that for those on the journey of pregnancy after loss, there should be somewhere to turn to.

Louise and Natalie have since joined the wonderful team, and they now run HOPE with support from Zephyr’s founder Carly. They both came along to the first HOPE sessions during their own ‘rainbow’ pregnancies, and they are now part of the team who host the monthly support meet ups, and provide communication and support via email and Facebook.

The HOPE group focuses on being inclusive, nurturing and open. Please feel welcome to contact us for more general information about the support we have available.
