To strengthen and build community and resources to hold and respond well to the grief process of when a baby dies.

Our Red Tent "end of life" doula preparation sits alongside our sister school Red Tent doula preparation which trains Birth Doulas; over the time we have been holding space for death and dying we have become ever more aware of the great gaps in the support and response by our communities to people whose baby dies; and we realised we wanted to create a common space to provide mutual support, story spaces, deep listening, resources and love to anyone either working in, or who find themselves in, the field of Birth so that when Birth and Death meet; we have the awareness and support to lean into. This is part of creating a community and societal shift in awareness and ease of conversation about these difficult and tender topics. 

The money we raise will finance a part time position of project officer to undertake and collate recordings of stories and our doula team will draw out and present resources and skills for our mutual learning; we want an online support website, regular online support groups which would we hope translate into face to face groups in our local communities and communities of shared heritage.

Let's make 'Where Birth meets Death' happen
