“Quantock Estate” together with
East Kent Sands Losing a baby, at whatever age, or stage of pregnancy is something none of us ever think about, but sadly it affects 15 families every single day. At East Kent Sands – and indeed across the whole Sands family – they are there to give you whatever support you need, on dealing with the death of your baby, on some of the practical considerations, how best to keep your special memories and how to plan for the future, perhaps with further pregnancies. They help by talking on the phone or face to face, or by text or email – whatever suits you best.
