Bereavement

Experiencing a loss of a pregnancy, stillbirth or a death of a baby is devastating. We want you to know that you are not alone. There are many organizations working with families to provide peer support, professional help and many resources for you and your family.

March of Dimes: From Hurt to Healing

Mount Sinai Hospital’s Late Loss Bereavement Support Group – offers a psychiatrist facilitated support group for late loss and neonatal death on Monday mornings (carrying mother only).

 

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network – offers volunteer facilitated support groups in a number of locations (both partners are welcome), individual support over the phone or online, and several annual events of remembrance.

For healthcare professionals: It’s important to support parents in a way that acknowledges the uniqueness of their loss and gives them permission to grieve.
