Stillborn And Infant Loss Support (SAILS) is bringing people together from all walks of life to support, encourage, and connect.

About this event

For the fourth year in a row, SAILS is bringing together people from all walks of life to support, encourage, and connect with others who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Again, this year, we’ll be together virtually.

This year's Summit theme is It's A Family Affair. You'll hear from mental health and grief experts, parents who have experienced a loss, and participate in our online candlelight ceremony to commemorate all of the babies who have gone on too soon.

Proceeds and any additional donations will be used to purchase a CuddleCot for a local hospital to support bereaved families, allowing parents to spend time with their baby easing the transition from saying hello to saying goodbye. Read more about CuddleCots here.
