"So many couples experience an early pregnancy loss around Australia. This places a significant burden upon women and their partners and creates an undeniable need for a specifically tailored support service such as The Pink Elephants Support Network to help them through the difficult days following their loss. I fully commend founders Sam and Gabbi on the wonderful charity they have created, and for taking their own experiences of miscarriage and channelling it into something so positive. Their website is both beautiful and nurturing, as are their free resources which validate the emotional impact of pregnancy loss for both women and their partners. Well done ladies.”
