To provide love, hope, understanding and support to families facing the devastating loss of their child.
To ensure all families who have lost a child have a feeling of ‘not being alone’ when leaving hospital with empty arms, and that they receive the support they need to navigate this difficult grief journey.
What We Do
Provide Queensland hospitals with memory boxes to give to families whose babies or children pass away from any cause from 16 weeks gestation up to 18 years of age,
Provide miscarriage bags to Queensland hospitals for losses from 5 – 16 weeks gestation,
Enable bereaved parents to create their own boxes in memory of their own child to supply their local hospitals, an immensely healing process and means each box is made with love and understanding. We are able to provide support, advice and if required contents for the boxes to enable the families to achieve this,
Support 'beyond the box' by running monthly support groups combined with memory box making facilitated by a qualified counsellor,
Provide education to health professionals and other groups on caring for bereaved families and the use of memory boxes.
All our services are provided free of charge and everyone that helps to run Precious Wings does so on a voluntary basis.
