SIDS and Kids Queensland provides bereavement and grief counselling for all types of loss, including SIDS, miscarriage, still birth, neo natal death, accidental death, drowning and congenital abnormalities.
Queensland has the highest rate of SIDS and stillbirth in Australia, and we are proud to give our support in helping SIDS and Kids Queensland achieve its goals.
