Still A Mum is both an online and offline platform that offers support to women dealing with pregnancy and infant loss. On the online platform, we have support groups on Facebook and WhatsApp for women in need of support after child loss. We also use these Facebook, Twitter and the website to create awareness on pregnancy and infant loss. This debunks myths associated with child loss allowing people to be more supportive to those affected. We carry out periodical Twitter chats, most recently we did one during the week preceding Mothers Day and it had over 3 Million impressions. We have a bog section that we use to share stories of women as well as write posts on various issues surrounding child loss.
Offline, we have support groups that meet every 2 weeks in a physical location and run for a total of 5 sessions.
