Welcome to the SIDS Calgary Society web site. The purpose of this web site is to offer information and support to the parents, families, friends, and health care professionals of a baby whose death was classified as sudden and unexpected. Support services are provided free of charge.

 


 

Peer Support Meetings

Time: 7pm

Dates: 2nd Tuesday of every 2nd Month

December 13, 2016

Who: Ashley France will be your contact person for the Peer Support Meetings.  She may be reached via e-mail at afrance794@gmail.com or by telephone or text at 403.464.6946.

Why:  We want to once again make peer support available to those that have experienced the death of an infant that has been classified as suddend and unexpected (e.g. SIDS, SUID, SUDI, etc).   These meetings offer a safe place to come to talk and share with others that can relate to what you may be going through or have gone through in the past surrounding the loss of your child.

You do not have to RSVP if you wish to attend.  

Please feel free to just show up and chat or just listen.

If this date does not work for you or peer support is not a fit at this time, please know that our meetings will always be open for you to join in at any time.
