We hold free peer-to-peer support group meetings in Connecticut each month for women and men who grieve the loss of a pregnancy or infant. These meetings provide the opportunity to connect with others who have experienced similar losses. We foster a welcoming and inclusive environment where women and men who have experienced the loss of a baby can freely share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences while supporting each other. There is no judgment at our meetings: only understanding, compassion, and respect.
Each of our support group meetings is led by either trained volunteer facilitators who have themselves experienced the loss of a pregnancy or infant or professional perinatal loss counselors. All of our groups are drop-in groups: new participants are always welcome, and you may attend as many or as few meetings as you like. To join a group, simply come to a meeting. You may come by yourself, with your partner, with a relative, or with a friend. There is never any pressure to speak; you may come to a meeting just to listen.
Though most people feel nervous before their first support group meeting, nearly everyone is glad they came. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming meetings. Please find the current schedule here. Our Loss groups are open to anyone who has lost a pregnancy or infant, no matter when your loss occurred. You may attend as many meetings each month as you like.
