Perinatal Loss Support Group

The hospital where I work has an excellent support group for people who have experienced the death of an infant. You do not have to deliver where I work to be able to join the group. The group alternates in English and Spanish. The English group starts in September. If you live in the area and are in need of support this may be the place for you. See below for more information or feel free to email me or leave a comment. I am supportive of this program for I know that it helps those who do attend...

this could be very helpful to all parents out there who have lost their child. Through this program they will be able to help a lot of women. Loss of an infant is not easy to handle some may find it devastating and could lead into depression. Support like this brings a lot of help. In case you have fertility concerns, I found this site that maybe helpful.
