Meet our volunteer Peer Support Programme Ambassadors.
Just like you they have experienced loss…they get it.

 

Anna – our Peer Support Manager

I understand what it’s like to lose a baby because I did too, and it’s devastating. The grief is consuming and isolating but you needn’t be alone. We believe it’s of the utmost importance that you are supported through your grief: we are here to listen, validate, support and empower you through this heartbreaking time. We ‘get it’ because we’ve also gone through it and we are here to help you in any way we can. We are so sorry for your loss.

 

Cheryl
Experiencing 4 miscarriages and a stillbirth with little support from family and friends, I felt lonely and very isolated following my losses. As a Peer Support Ambassador,  I am able to support women and help them through their grief. I understand the importance of a listening ear and making sure a women’s pregnancy loss is acknowledged.

 

 

Jenny
After my miscarriage, I remember the intense feelings of grief, loss and loneliness. I didn’t get out of bed for several days. I didn’t feel like anybody would understand the feelings that I was having. As a Peer Support Ambassador I’m able to do something that I wish someone had done for me. Someone who understands, listens and validates your pregnancy loss.

 

 

Karen

Going through a miscarriage at 12 weeks after 2 perfect scans confirming a sac and heartbeat was devastating. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, dealing with the GP and emergency department. Whilst I had good clinical care and a supportive partner, I’d never felt so alone or insignificant in my life. I love everything Pink Elephants stands for, supporting grieving mothers so they don’t have to feel like I felt.

 

Lisa

The experience of pregnancy loss reminds us that we need each other more than ever in our darkest times.
Holding the virtual hand of another who is moving through the stages of a loss that you are also familiar with, is one of the most profound acts of humanity. I know the grief and loss of miscarriage and termination intimately, and being able to support others through this is a privilege and also a part of my own journey.

 

Maggi

Kindness & compassion is at the heart of my role as Peer Support Ambassador. Having suffered two miscarriages I know how important it is having someone who understands the grief that comes with loss. I really want to give women the support I would have wanted. I feel that this is the next part of my journey through something that affects so many of us.

 

Melissa

I joined Pink Elephants Support Network as an ambassador because I know the heartache a mother endures after pregnancy loss. I’ve experienced three miscarriages (and a still birth) and for me it was a very painful period to go through. A mother should feel supported after pregnancy loss and not feel alone. I hope by me offering my support as an Ambassador I can help make your journey through grief a little easier.

 

 

Michelle

Having experienced infertility and recurrent miscarriage, I know that talking to someone who has been through something similar really helps. As a Peer Support Ambassador I have the opportunity to listen and support other women and help them on their journey.

 

 

Monique

After two healthy pregnancies I was shattered when a 12 week ultrasound revealed there was no heartbeat. I vividly remember all the emotions I felt – failure, hopelessness, longing, shock and despair. I was surprised by the depth of my grief at such an early stage. As a Pink Elephants Support Ambassador I now walk alongside women who have experienced miscarriage and early pregnancy loss to validate their feelings and show kindness and care – sprinkled with hope.

 

If you’ve experienced early pregnancy loss in your fertility journey, you’ll know just how important it is to be able to talk to – and connect with – someone else who has also been there. Now is your chance to provide that support to a woman who needs it, by becoming a Peer Support Ambassador.

To be eligible to become a Pink Elephants’ Peer Support Ambassador, we ask that applicants be at least 12 months + since their last loss, and preferably have finished their journey. Some questions may seem personal but please be assured all information received will be treated with the highest confidentiality.
