The Tamba Bereavement Support Group (BSG) exists to support all parents and carers of multiples who have experienced loss whether it was during pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards. We are so sorry for your loss and hope that by making contact with the BSG you will find some comfort.
The group was established in 1982 in response to requests from parents who had lost a twin. Dr Elizabeth Bryan, a founder member of the the Twins and Multiples Births Association (TAMBA), recognised the special needs of such families and started it off by producing the first leaflet of its kind on this subject. As more people contacted the group it became clear that families faced with the loss of both twins had yet another set of problems, as did parents who had suffered a cot death.
Tamba BSG offers parent to parent support via our befriending service.
You can download an electronic copy of Tamba's bereavement booklet here. If you would like a hardcopy of the booklet, or like to have further support from the group, please email Helen Turier.
Tamba now have a separate electronic booklet for parents who have suffered a loss from TTTS, if you would like a copy of this booklet please send us an email.
Tamba want fewer TTTS Angels and more TTTS survivors. So we are currently running The TTTS Appeal to raise money to provide a national registry of TTTS cases, treatments and outcomes. This should improve patient care, lead to better outcomes and provide useful data for future research. If you are interested in finding out more or would like to support the appeal please go to http:/www.tamba.org.uk/ttts/landing
