My beautiful son was born stillborn on 28th June 2012, i was 37 weeks pregnant. We named him Sheriff. I have found it very difficult as i had a straight forward pregnancy and one minute he was here and the next minute he was gone. I use the sands forum and have found it to be a great life line. I would love to get involved more in Glasgow Sands if anyone help me. Thank you

Jamilah, i am so sorry to hear about your son.   I lost my boy in 2006 and it is still as fresh today.   What i have found though is that it does get easier with time.   You are still very early in the grief process and I'm sure there are a lot of questions and thoughts going round your head.   If i can support you in any way please let me know and i will do my best to help.   If you would like to talk to someone you can either email the befriends or phone them, both contacts are on the site.   As for helping with SANDS we are always very thankful to parents wishing to offer their support.   Is there anything in particular you were wanting to do or get involved in?

We are so sorry that your baby has died.


Memory BoxIt may feel very hard to take in the reality of what has happened and to have any thoughts of what to do next. However, many parents have told us how important the memories of the short time they have with their baby are and that they have found it comforting to have reminders that they can look at and hold.

This ‘Always Loved, Never Forgotten’ memory box is given by Glasgow Sands as a way to create some memories which you can cherish.
