MISS Male Group
For our males and partners information live event this Thursday at 7:30pm, MISS are delighted to be speaking with Alternatives Listening Rooms.
Do you feel like lockdown has affected the way you feel about yourself?
Have you enjoyed more or less time to be you?
Lockdown has affected everyone differently, this survey asks men, and in particular dads about how it has affected them, their lives and relationships. Maybe you will identify with some of what is shared or will have a different experience of your own.
Join us as we look at some of the results and discuss how things have been for partners affected by pregnancy loss during this season.
Pregnancy 1:1 Online Sessions
Our next pregnancy 1:1 online session with a senior midwife, Myra Kinnaird, from Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, is on Thursday 29th April from 6-8pm. Although this session is now fully booked there is a second session Tuesday the 4th April. This session will run from 9:30am – 11:30am, there are spaces available at 9:30, 10:30 and 11am.
If you would like to arrange a 20 minute confidential and free appointment, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can ask questions, share how you are feeling or provide feedback – Myra is here to support and listen with you. These sessions are if you are trying again after a loss or are pregnant and feeling anxious.

MISS Cookbook and Bake Off
Did you know we have the MISS cookbook. This could be a fun hobby or activity to keep you busy and your mind busy during these uncertain and strange times. The cookbook which is only £5 comprises 37 easy to make, healthy and delicious recipes including smoothies, starters, main meals and desserts.
Did you know that cooking is a therapy and is effective because it encourages creativity. Cooking also makes people feel good about themselves because it’s a way for them to nurture others. For most dishes, there is also a sense of immediate gratification.
If you would like to purchase a copy or buy for a friend/family member please email: email@example.com
We also have a fun online event coming up!
The event is only £10 which goes to a local charity and you will get to make delicious cupcakes from Vegan Bay Baker. As well as this get a free copy of the MISS cookbook.
