On the second Thursday of each month, we hold a group at 7:15-9:30pm in Curl Aberdeen. More structure and around a table, however plenty of information and advice for you to be able to hear and ask questions if you have.
Also at Rubislaw Church Centre, we have another support group. Held on the third Monday of each month at 10-11am. Slightly more informal and relaxed, with a cuppa and open chat.
All of our groups are no obligation to talk about your experience. Listen, talk to others about your day and meet the MISS team. We are here to support you!
They are free of charge to attend.
Call us at any time of day.
One of our volunteers are available to speak with you 24/7.
If you would like to share your story, ask a question, unsure of your symptoms or need a recommendation we are happy to speak with you.
The number to contact is: 07808 638428
All calls are free, confidential and not recorded.

We very much appreciate all your donations as without your support and generosity, we could not continue and is a great way for MISS to grow! We regularly post on social media and announce at support groups our upcoming plans and projects, so keep a lookout for where your donations are going to.

pregnancy after loss
Since 2020, we have started support for pregnancy after loss. This is for women who are now pregnant, previously had a miscarriage and feeling anxious. Or for any ladies who are not able to fall pregnant. We have organised on the last Thursday of each month, 6-8pm a video session led by Myra Kinnaird (Bereavement Support Specialist Midwife) at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital. These will be 20 minute appointments where you can talk about your experience, ask a question or just chat. If you would like to book an appointment please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to encourage men to attend our support group, call our phone service and attend our events. We would like to ensure that men are supported after a miscarriage too as they have become a parent and lost their baby. Miscarriage is a taboo subject but we would like to encourage both male and females to open up about their experience. Keep a lookout on our social media for males only activities/events!’
Although miscarriage is a loss for you both, it happened physically for a women. However men may be affected from an emotional point of view. Simply being there for your partner by listening and giving her a shoulder to cry on is often what most women want from their partners. We welcome men to attend our support groups, fundraising events and other MISS activities.
At MISS we would like to ensure that our members feel supported at any time of day, evening or holidays. Our support includes monthly support groups, next pregnancy support, phone service and social media pages. We work closely with the Bereavement Team at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital so if there are any questions we cannot answer or would like additional advice we can get in touch with them and receive a quick response.
There are also several other organisations in the UK which you can contact for support, advice and information which are listed below alphabetically.
