They cover the area from Newbury, Basingstoke, Thatcham, Reading & Andover and all the places in between. They also offer support and information to Reading, Basingstoke and Newbury Hospitals as well as local GP surgeries.
This group is run by volunteers who are bereaved parents themselves and so understand the devastation and heartache of losing a baby.
