Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Grieving is painful for everyone, but the death of a baby represents a very special grief. Often family and friends are well-meaning, but cannot give parents the support they need.
If your baby has died, you can find support from people who understand your intense grief and emptiness: other parents who have lost a baby. Bereaved parents share a natural bond, and it enables them to support and encourage each other in a very unique way.
The Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Group helps parents whose baby has died through ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, stillborn, or newborn death. The group is made up of parents and is led by a registered nurse and a social worker. It is not therapy, instead it’s a group of parent who find comfort and courage in talking with others who also walk this difficult path.
This group meets at United Hospital every other Monday from 5:00 – 6:30 pm and is free of charge. See the box at top right for session dates (use scroll bar).
Pre-registration is requested. Please call Annette Klein, RN for more information or to register at 651-241-6206.
