Support Meetings/Workshops

Anyone who has lost a baby to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, newborn death, and SIDS is welcome to attend a Support Meeting. Due to the nature of the meetings, we ask that children do not attend unless they have specifically been invited. Moms and Dads are welcome to attend together. Often, meetings can be a great starting point for meaningful and healing discussions as a couple. Grandparents are welcome to all meetings whether or not attended by loss parent. You can also bring a support person/friend with you if you feel it would help you feel more comfortable. Even if you’re not certain you’re ready to come to a meeting, please contact us or get on our mailing list to remind you about upcoming meetings.

Each meeting has an assigned topic, but those are suggestions to help get conversations going. We are always willing to talk about whatever is on your mind and whatever can help you in your grieving journey. You are always welcome to bring pictures and mementos of your baby at meetings if you'd like.

We currently hold SIX support meetings EACH month and offer a Grandparents Grief Support Meeting every other month throughout 2020 (February, April, June, August, October, and December). Please know you never need to go without support and will often get instant responses via our Facebook support pages and more than a few days without personal face-to-face support via our support meetings. We meet the 1st Wednesday, 2nd Tuesday, 2nd Wednesday, 3rd Wednesday, 3rd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of each month (details are below).

January: Recreating Yourself: A New Perspective for the New Year
