Petals has been working in partnership with Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow since 2018 to deliver our specialist counselling support to bereaved parents.

Your route to requesting Petals counselling will depend upon where you live:

If you are an Essex resident and you received your care at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, please see below the criteria for which you can request counselling and the link to the form you will need to complete.

The terms of our partnership with the Princess Alexandra Hospital state that we are able to provide funded counselling sessions to parents who are Essex residents and who have experienced any of the below within the last year:


  • Second Trimester Loss
  • Termination for Medical Reasons (TFMR)
  • Stillbirth
  • Pregnancy After Loss (You will need to have had counselling with Petals for your loss before you can request counselling for Pregnancy After Loss)

If you fit the above criteria please click HERE to complete our Request for Counselling form.

If you are a Hertfordshire resident and you received your care at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, please click HERE to find all the information you will need to request Petals counselling.

If your loss does not come under any of the above, it would still be hugely beneficial for both you and us if you complete our Request for Counselling Form.  Our counselling coordinator will always respond to you and signpost you to other services that may be able to offer you support.  Furthermore, the collation of accurate data showing how many parents need our support provides important evidence for us to take to funders as we work hard to expand our service.
