Who we are: 

SiMBA founded in 2005; we offer a range of support and services to anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or after birth.

What we offer: 

We donate Memory Boxes to help families gather memories of the time that they spent with their baby.

  • We refurbish Family Rooms giving families a peaceful homely place in the hospital to spend precious time with their baby.
  • We fundraise to install SiMBA Trees of Tranquility, which are stunning hand crafted, life sized sculptures, made from copper, where each leaf on the tree honours a baby who has died.
  • We also offer monthly bereavement support groups across Scotland, 24 hour online support via our closed Facebook pages.
  • Organise family friendly awareness events throughout the year.
  • In conjunction with CHAS, we offer free bereavement and palliative care study days for students and health professionals and anyone supporting bereaved families.

The way that we approach families, and the way that we help them to make memories is incredibly important; even the smallest gesture can mean the world. Our job is to empower parents, to take away their fear if we can by encouraging them to hold and cuddle their baby and create memories that can never be taken away. Each time a parent looks into their Memory Box, we want it to be full of memories; time spent with their baby, time creating the clay imprint kits, inkless certificates, making hand and foot prints together, taking photos together. A Memory Box is often described as a parent's most treasured possession.
