We are a miscarriage support service covering all of scotland for anyone who has experienced baby loss.
MISS offers a confidential space for anyone in Scotland to receive support, information and advice as well as understand they are not alone after going through miscarriage
One to one sessions with a member of our MISS Support Team for new or existing members.
These meetings usually take place virtually (with or without video) or via a phone call at a time convenient for both the MISS Support Team member and yourself. Sessions can last up to an hour.
We have both male and female Support Team members available to speak to speak to.
This time can be used for you to share your experience, cry, ask questions or anything else. It is a judgement free space for you to discuss anything on your mind. We are here to support and listen.
