Antenatal care and perinatal hospice
If your baby has had a poor diagnosis before birth and is not expected to survive, support and information is available for your decision making.
Sands Wanganui will fully support you in your decision and help you as best as we can to help make it a more gentle process. We can help you with your birth and care plans, birth coaching, funeral arrangements, photography and memory collecting.
