We are here to support any person affected by the death of a baby. We offer one-to-one befriending, telephone support and advice as well as regular group support meetings.


We work with people in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas and all of our services are provided free of charge by local volunteers - Beds SANDS receives no funding other than by donation.

Bereavement Suite Update

Works are underway!

We are extremely happy to announce that works have now commenced on the Bereavement Suite within the Cygnet Wing at Bedford Hospital.

The works began on 13th February and anticipate completion the beginning of April.

We would like to thank everyone for the support with the fundraising which has helped us achieve our goal in ensuring that future bereaved parents will have somewhere special to give birth and stay with their baby until they leave hospital.
