Having information on bereavement can help you understand your loss and learn ways to cope. We hope our list of publications and downloads can provide some support through the loss of one or more of your multiples.

Written together with bereaved families, our booklet includes support and information on the death of one or more of your twins, triplets or higher order multiples. It also covers subsequent pregnancies and how to remember babies who have died.

Termination for medical reasons (TFMR) booklet

If you have just been given the difficult news that you may need to consider a TFMR in your twin pregnancy, we are sorry. It is not a situation that is spoken or heard about much and you may feel very alone. In the world of baby loss, it is an area that is often overlooked and yet something that thousands of parents face every year. We hope that this booklet will provide helpful information about what might be ahead if you decide to have a TFMR.
