Wye Valley NHS Trust

Starting in March 2023, Petals is working in partnership with Wye Valley NHS Trust to provide a specialist online counselling service for women/birthing people and their partners who experience baby loss and who received their care at Hereford County Hospital. 

The terms of this partnership state that we are able to provide funded counselling sessions to parents who have experienced any of the below within the last year:


  • Early miscarriage
  • Second-trimester miscarriage
  • Terminations of pregnancy for medical reasons (tfmr)
  • Stillbirth
  • Neonatal Loss on the labour ward
  • 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.  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.



If you work in another Trust and are interested in setting up a Petals service, please contact us via counselling@petalscharity.org
