We are privileged to work in partnership with the following organisations to help us raise awareness, expand our support and broaden our reach within the community.
We have always recognised the relationship between miscarriage and infertility and as such, are thrilled to be partnering with leading fertility specialists Genea to support both couples and healthcare professionals in the treatment of both these conditions.
A selection of our Emotional Support Resources are now available in all Genea clinics across Australia and we are currently working on some exciting projects together to extend our reach to many many more women and couples who need it!
We are privileged to be partnered with Health direct Australia in their mission to ensure that all Australians have access to trusted information, services and advice. This partnership reflects a shared vision between Pink Elephants and health direct to empower the Australian community to manage their own health and wellbeing.
By partnering with health direct, we are able to increase our reach and give more women and couples experiencing early miscarriage and pregnancy loss, the opportunity to access our information and connect with us.

Tanarra Philanthropic Advisors
Tanarra Philanthropic Advisors is a national probono advisory service helping progressive charities and social purpose organisations achieve maximum potential for the sector they serve. It was founded by investment banker and philanthropist John Wylie AM in response to a gap in NFP access to high level business and strategic advice, the kind usually only available to the corporate sector. The organisation is known for posing the tough questions then delivering practical, actionable and impartial advice to improve effectiveness.
Tanarra Philanthropic Advisors is supporting the Pink Elephants Support Network for a number of reasons. Firstly the cause of early pregnancy loss resonates with us and the organisation fills a distinct space as Australia’s only national charity solely dedicated to supporting those impacted by miscarriage. Secondly the leadership and board impressed us and continues to demonstrate their strengths by rolling up their sleeves and doing the hard yards. Finally, our skill-set and their needs are a good match. We can see that our work could have a lasting impact without ongoing dependency.
The Leave for Loss Campaign – introduction of legislated bereavement leave (2 days) to support women who suffer miscarriage and their partners, is one simple but important way employers can recognise the trauma, stress and grief experienced at the loss of a baby.

It was our pleasure to offer pro bono support to Pink Elephants' Leave for Loss campaign for bereavement leave to recognise grief for early pregnancy loss. Early pregnancy loss is a tough and confronting reality for many Australians each year. It isn't talked about openly and frequently enough, and deserves to be more a part of public policy conversations too.
We were pleased that we could offer Pink Elephants analytically driven advice on the potential cost of introducing two days of bereavement leave for early pregnancy loss. It's important to acknowledge that a policy like this has a cost, but also to know that it is modest. We used our expertise in working through unstructured problems, combining data, logic and clear assumptions to provide an estimate of cost and we're confident this will serve Pink Elephants well in supporting its campaign.
