Pregnancy Loss Australia is the original bear giving program in Australia founded in Adelaide in 2002. It is a special gift from one bereaved family to another, something for them to hold onto before they have to leave the hospital with such empty arms. Family's welcomed and embraced the gesture by giving bears back to other family's about to travel this journey.
The bear giving is the basis of the support program by connecting with bereaved families right at the very beginning and offering ongoing support.
We have been operating in every state of Australia since 2004 and now offers the program in every maternity hospital of Australia.
