St George’s University Hospitals
In January 2023, Petals began working in partnership with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to deliver our specialist counselling support to bereaved parents.
The terms of this partnership state that we are able to provide funded counselling sessions to parents who have experienced any of the below on labour ward, within the last year:
- Late Miscarriage
- Termination of pregnancy for Medical Reasons and complex terminations
- Neonatal Loss
- Pregnancy After Loss (You will need to have had counselling with Petals for your loss before you can request counselling for Pregnancy After Loss)
Your referral must come from a healthcare professional in the bereavement midwifery team at St George’s. If you fit the above criteria, please ask the professional referring you to click HERE to complete our Request for Counselling form.
If your loss does not come under any of the above, it would still be hugely beneficial for both you and us if you complete our Request for Counselling Form. Our counselling coordinator will always respond to you and signpost you to other services that may be able to offer you support. Furthermore, the collation of accurate data showing how many parents need our support provides important evidence for us to take to funders as we work hard to expand our service.
