Pink Elephants are a community of women who have all gone through the heartbreaking experiences of losing our much-loved babies and, like elephants who all stand around in a circle and mourn together, we are here to support you through your grief. Research has shown that 282 women a day suffer from early pregnancy loss throughout Australia, with 1 in 4 pregnancies (not women), ending in miscarriage. Sadly, we cannot physically be with each and every one through the heartbreaking and individual journey, but you definitely don’t have to walk it alone. To surround and incorporate you with a larger nurturing community, we provide a free inclusive monthly virtual #circleofsupport with a specifically picked panel to provide information, perspective and experiences regarding the relevant and diverse topics that relate to early pregnancy loss.
Our next virtual #circleofsupport panel discussion
Will be about: Meeting our Peer Support Ambassadors
Our final Virtual #circleofsupport for 2020 will be a chance for you to meet our wonderful Peer Support Ambassadors and get to know a bit more about them and their loss journeys.
We will be chatting about our experience with loss and how it has led us to be a part of Pink Elephants and we will also be touching on some coping strategies for the holiday season as we know this time can be a difficult time full of triggers for many in our community.
Date: Friday 27th November
You are very welcome to ask questions throughout the talk within the chat box or under the Facebook Live event, which we aim to answer at the end of the talk.
