ARC forum for bereaved parents

The ARC forum is only for people who have lost a baby following a prenatal diagnosis. It is password-protected and moderated by ARC staff. It provides a private, supportive space where bereaved parents can share feelings, experiences, coping strategies and hopes for the future.

You must be registered with ARC to be signed up to the forum. It is free to residents of the UK (although donations are very welcome). All we need is your name, your full postal address, and a brief description of your experience.

If you live outside the UK, you can join ARC and the forum for an annual fee of £15 (Europe) or £25 (rest of the world).

Please send your details directly to or call the ARC office on 0207 713 7486. One of our experienced team will respond to you as soon as possible, in office hours.

In addition to having access to the forum, ARC members will be added to our mailing list and receive our newsletter and invitations to meetings and events.

Please note: if you are here because you are considering your options after being given difficult news following a test or scan, please don't hesitate to contact our team of professional, experienced staff via the ARC helpline on 0207 713 7486 or by email at

We are sometimes asked why we do not have a forum for people who have been given a result from a test or scan and who are considering their options. These situations are very sensitive and emotive and we feel that moderating a forum for such a wide range of diagnoses and possible outcomes, and such differing individual needs, would be very difficult. But it can help to talk to someone who is not emotionally involved and who has an understanding of the often very complex issues. Please don't hesitate to contact our helpline for support and information.
