Perinatal Bereavement Support Group
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support
CARES is a support group for those who have experienced the loss of a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, or early infant death. This group offers support, friendship, understanding and acceptance to parents throughout the grieving process.
Meetings offer parents the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings in an accepting atmosphere. As parents listen to others, they realize they are not alone. This awareness brings comfort, strength, and healing.
Those present have the opportunity to share their experiences, express their pain and grief, and respond to other parents. Active participation is not required. Participants may simply listen, if that is what is comfortable for them.
