Help for Grandparents

Help for Grandparents

A handbook for supporting grandparents through difficult family times

A pregnancy is welcomed by the whole family and grandparents-to-be often have their own very special hopes and dreams, as their children begin families of their own. When told that there is something seriously wrong with the baby, everybody's hopes and expectations are shattered. At such a time, care and attention will be focused on the baby's parents, who are in real need of support. However, grandparents too can feel powerful and confusing emotions; wanting to help, but also suffering themselves.

This leaflet explains a little more about the diagnosis of fetal anomalies during pregnancy, and the choices that are available to parents. It talks about some of the emotions other grandparents have felt, and gives advice on ways to cope during a difficult and painful time.

Cost per book: £2 plus P&P in the UK. £4 including P&P for overseas orders.
