Private and Public Hospitals
Bears Of Hope aim to provide leading support to families in their time of loss. If you work in Delivery, Maternity, Social Work, Emergency, Early Pregnancy Clinics, Day Surgery, NICU, and Children's Hospitals, we strongly encourage you to read our vision, mission and values, and become affiliated with our Early Support Program.
We supply Bears Of Hope Packages at no cost to hospitals.
We offer 3 invaluable packages for support:
1) Hope Package for families who don't have the opportunity to see and hold their baby
2) Sophie Package for families who see and hold their baby
3) Xavier Package for families who experience the loss of their baby in the NICU environment.
Through our exclusive Bear Of Hope and Gifts, parents are acknowledged, comforted and guided through their loss. They are empowered with vital information before they leave the hospital to minimise any regrets surrounding their loss. These packages provide an immediate link to support giving parents a place to start. We understand how crucial it is that parents feel supported from the very beginning of their loss to facilitate their grieving and healing journey more effectively.
These support packages were developed from the personal experiences of the executive committee and feedback from the many parents we support on a daily basis. Our support literature is overseen by Psychologists, Doctor's, and Bereavement Coordinator's.
Our Beyond The Bear Program is as vital as our Early Support Program. We currently offer Parent-led pyschologist faciliated support groups at no cost to parents aswell as many other important services and choices for parents.

"I wanted you to know that your inservice has brought about change on the ward, which will directly benefit women experiencing a pregnancy loss. It has increased knowledge of support for women and enabled the social work team to work collaboratively with the midwives to ensure best practice and holistic care. So, for this, I thank you."

GP's and Obstetricians
If you are a General Practitioner or Obstetrician we strongly encourage you to contact us for delivery of our Miscarriage Support Brochure & Later Loss Brochures to have placed in your rooms.
There are many parents who experience a miscarriage and don't present at a hospital. It is so important that we can reach these parents through their local doctor or Obstetrician. Many parents suffer in silence when they experience a miscarriage and often are expected to get over it quickly, so it's crucial that they can receive support information through their local Doctor or Obstetrician. Our program offers this early support service so please contact us. There is no cost involved for you at all.
