The Lullaby Trust

When a baby dies suddenly and unexpectedly, the death is a terrible shock and can be one of the most distressing events that can ever happen.

If you are reading this because you have experienced the death of a baby we offer you our deepest sympathies.

We offer confidential support to anyone affected by the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or young toddler.

This is available immediately or at any later time in your lives. This support is for families, friends, carers and professionals.

We have different ways of supporting you through this difficult time; we provide a range of services and can provide details of other organisations which might be helpful.

If you would like the opportunity to talk freely, for as long as required, with a sympathetic and understanding listener please call our Helpline.

Calls to our Helpline are free from all landlines and most mobile phone networks.

The Helpline is open:-

Monday – Friday 10am-5pm
Weekends and public holidays 6pm–10pm 
(answered by trained befrienders, all with personal experience of bereavement)

The Helpline does not offer a formal counselling service but offers the support of our team of befrienders.

Befrienders are themselves bereaved parents, grandparents and other relatives, who offer personal support which can be arranged via the Helpline.

The befriender will contact you by phone or email, though face-to-face meetings may also be possible.
