This is an 8 Week Program which runs twice a year – in the spring and fall, however we accept registrations year round.
This group is for parents who have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, as an infant or a child up to and including the age of two.
Everything changes after the death of your infant. It can be hard to cope with the overwhelming emotions you might be experiencing. Our 8-week group offers a safe space to connect with other grieving parents, to share your story and to support one another through your loss.
All of our groups are run by trained volunteers who are bereaved parents themselves. Everyone in the room has experienced the death of their infant; you are not alone.
Our sessions include group discussion and theme-specific activities which explore different aspects of grief, such as:
- Coping with special days
- Diversity in grief
- Changing relationships
- Returning to work
There is no right way to grieve, there is only your way to grieve. Through our support groups we hope that you will experience personal growth and learn the tools for adapting to your new normal.
