SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support) is a self-help support group comprised of parents who have experienced the death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or shortly after birth.

SANDS aims to:

- facilitate the normal grief process for the newly bereaved and for parents whose natural grief was denied appropriate expression at the time of their baby's death - providing direct support through a national support line - 13 000 SANDS (13 000 72637)

- change the community attitude and associated practices that fail to recognise the death of a baby as a real loss, legitimate to mourn

- encourage research into the incidence, cause, effects on the family and methods of preventing and alleviating associated problems with the death of a baby.
