Testimonials

Parent: “SANDS Lothians helped me keep my sanity”.

Parent: “Absolutely essential service – I look on the days before SANDS Lothians as the dark ages”.

Former Head of Midwifery, St John’s: “If it wasn’t for SANDS Lothians, bereavement counselling in the Lothians would not be nearly as good as it is. Our practice has improved considerably as a result of their input”.

Former Hospital Chaplain: “I want to emphasise the great importance of SANDS Lothians”.

Parent: “An invaluable service with a dedicated workforce”.

Parent: “Their help and support knows no boundaries. Without this service it would be hard to move forward”.

Professor Neil Macintosh: “The staff are very dedicated, friendly people. They are very much involved because they have had the problems themselves. SANDS Lothians do the job with a sensitivity that is natural and important”.

Maternity Staff Member, New Royal Infirmary: “SANDS Lothians input has been big and positive within the local maternity hospitals. It has been around so long that staff now take their contribution for granted”.

QUOTE FROM A FOURTH YEAR MEDICAL STUDENT.

30th May 2011

'I am a medical student at the Simpson Unit in the RIE, and today we had a talk from some members of SANDS Lothians.

I just want to say what a really educational talk it was, and how I feel totally humbled by how strong the women who came in to talk to us were, sharing such painful subjects with essentially a group of strangers.

Until today I never realised some of the problems surrounding stillbirths and perinatal mortality, and I cant understate how important your members work with health care students is to making a difference about things in the future.'
