TLC Pregnancy & Infant Loss Australia
TLC Pregnancy and Infant Loss Australia is an Australia wide support program for bereaved parents who suffer the loss of their baby or babies to miscarriage, stillbirth, termination of pregnancy for foetal abnormality and neonatal death.
TLC donates traditional Teddy Bears to bereaved parents, in the hope the bear may help to ease the pain of leaving the hospital with such aching empty arms. We hope to provide parents with the comfort of knowing they are not alone right from the beginning, and offer significant ongoing support & understanding.
The TLC program is the original bear giving program in Australia established 26th October 2002 in Adelaide. TLC operates in every state of Australia with the program represented in almost every maternity hospital across the country. TLC is leading the way in providing support, guidance and comfort to bereaved parents, their families and friends.
The TLC program provides a range of support services including:
Ongoing professional counselling
Free professional telephone counselling
Free call 1800 bereavement support line
We hope our website is a valuable, supportive resource for you.
Please know you are always welcome to contact us to talk with someone who understands and cares.
