Pregnancy Loss Australia (formerly known as Teddy Love Club) is a national support program for bereaved families who suffer the loss of their baby or babies from miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for feotal abnormality and neo natal loss through our early support program and professional support services.
The program is the original bear giving program in Australia established 26th October 2002 in Adelaide, donating teddy bears and complete care packages to families who suffer the loss of their baby's in the hope the bear may help to ease the pain of leaving the hospital with such empty arms.
We provide parents with the comfort of knowing they are not alone right from the beginning, and offer significant ongoing support and understanding to bereaved parents, their families and their friends.
