We are very sorry for your loss.
At Pink Elephants, we are striving to make early pregnancy loss less invisible. We hope that no person walks alone on this journey, and part of that is to understand your experiences of loss, the support you had, and the support you wish you had. Conducting research into experiences of pregnancy loss can help us better support others through their own bereavement.
If you wish to share your experiences, below are some research projects that are studying early pregnancy loss. Some are conducted by Pink Elephants, others are collaborations we have with Universities, and others still are projects that we have promoted but have no affiliation with Pink Elephants.
Thank you in advance for your time. We understand that sharing your experiences may be a trigger for you. If you’d like to speak with someone, please contact:
Lifeline Australia: 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/ to speak with a counsellor
Pink Elephants Support Network: https://miscarriagesupport.org.au/ for pregnancy loss resources and an online peer support community
Pink Elephants’ Projects
What are the benefits of using an online support group for women following early pregnancy loss?
The Pink Elephants is evaluating the effectiveness of our online support groups and invite you to share your experiences of using them via this short survey. There are three different surveys for the three different support groups that we provide:
