Our Babies, Our Grief 

Hamilton-Halton Region


Our Babies, Our Grief: Infant and Pregnancy Loss Support Group      

“Journeying Through Birth and Loss Together”

Part of Home Hospice Association’s Pre and Perinatal Hospice Program


Whether you’ve lost your baby through miscarriage, termination, stillbirth or as an infant, this support group welcomes you to come and share your grief journey with other parents. During our 6 weeks together, we will explore grief, learn about healthy grieving practices and provide a caring, open, listening environment for you to share and express your own grief. Most of all, the purpose of our group is to provide a space where you can honour the memory of your child and come together with other grieving parents to find support and know that you are not alone.


      "As we continue to monitor the situation surrounding

       COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone

        the start date of Our Babies, Our Grief. We are aiming to

         start at the beginning of June, but will continue to monitor

        the latest information including recommendations from

CDC and World Health Organization.

We will keep you posted regarding a new start date."

My “Why”


In my practice as a Birth Doula, I have heard often from other Birth Doulas that there is little support for parents who have experienced an infant or pregnancy loss.  The stigma still exists; people are unsure what to say; there is no one to talk to.  I am hoping that by facilitating this group I can help parents to speak about their loss and baby and begin the healing process, while creating lasting friendship with others who have experienced the same. Read Sue's Full Biography
