What to expect
Our group includes mothers, fathers, and grandparents that need support after experiencing the loss of a baby. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member with you for support.
Due to the sensitive nature of our meetings, we do not allow children at our meetings including infants.
Our meeting themes rotate between guided discussion, speakers, and crafts.
Refreshments are served at each meeting.
In November, we traditionally have a chili dinner as part of our meeting.
In December, we create ornaments in memory of our babies. Children are invited to this special annual meeting.
