Every life, no matter how brief, forever changes the world. Families whose lives have been touched by the unfortunate death of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth share a unique type of grief and loss. Families who have suffered the loss of an infant or pregnancy are invited to virtually attend a new, weekly support group, hosted by SHARE of Western Wisconsin and SHARE of Eastern Wisconsin.
HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital serves as the host site for the Western Wisconsin SHARE Chapter and HSHS St. Vincent Hospital serves as the host site for the Northeast Wisconsin SHARE Chapter.
Meeting online every Monday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for six weeks, the support group will help you:
- Gain insight and understanding of the grief process and your loss
- Share your experience in a non-judgmental atmosphere with other parents who have walked a similar journey
- Navigate the experience of grief
- Find ways to cope
- Learn ways to remember your loved one
- Create a self-care plan
This group is for adults only. For questions, please call: Women and Infants Center (715) 717-4156 or Spiritual Care (715) 717-6174.
