Vision and mission

That no one walks the journey of early pregnancy loss alone

We seek to normalise early pregnancy loss by smashing the stigma and leading a new narrative, through evidence-based data, acknowledging the diversity of experiences, providing useful tools and content, and facilitating meaningful connections.

To normalise early pregnancy loss worldwide through evidence, empathy and connection.

Inspired to make a lasting positive difference, Pink Elephants helps those experiencing early pregnancy loss feel cared for, protected and understood.

How The Pink Elephants Support Network can help

Pink Elephants offers a number of peer support lead services as well as downloadable resources, online communities, and our Bereavement Support Program — all these can be found on our website:

Pink Elephants Peer Support Program is a community of women who have all gone through the heartbreaking experiences of losing our much-loved babies, and we want you to know we truly understand, you are not alone, and you did nothing wrong. We have been where you are, we get it. And we're in this together.
