Miscarriage Support Auckland Inc

Miscarriage Support Auckland Inc. is a small group of women who formed a not-for-profit organisation in 1985 to offer peer support to women and their families experiencing miscarriage. In 2000, we adapted our information for our 100-page website to cover as many aspects of miscarriage as possible. We understand the pain and the desolation associated with the grieving process and try to alleviate some of the enormous isolation and loneliness women often feel, while recognising that the experience each woman has is unique. ?It is the strength of the bond with their baby, sometimes unknowingly, not the pregnancy length that determines the intensity of this grief.í
