Whether your loss is due to miscarriage, baby loss for medical reasons, stillbirth, infant death, or adoption, Our Babies, Our Grief welcomes you to make our support part of your grief journey. Join us for our six-week progressive healing group and our monthly check-ins.
About Our Babies, Our Grief
Founded in the practice of self-care and acceptance, Our Babies, Our Grief provides an opportunity for participants to tap into their wisdom, learn from each other, and explore their grief in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Following the companioning model of compassionate care, this program provides a unique and much-needed type of support for wherever participants are in their grieving. Participants will have the space to connect with others, build awareness and learn how they can tend to the memory of and love for their baby, as well as speak to their experience and how the loss shows up in their lives.
We offer support through our monthly check-in sessions and our online or in person six-week healing groups. All our support programs are free of charge and open to anyone who has experienced infant or pregnancy loss.
In these sessions, we’ll learn helpful concepts to understand, talk about and support our grief. We will work through some of the hurtful or worrying aspects of the experience and acknowledge both our shared lived experiences and those that are unique to our individual circumstances.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the commitment of our facilitators, we are able to provide these healing spaces at no cost to you. To find out how you can support the program, please click here.
Why we meet:
To provide a safe, open, caring space where you can mourn your loss.
To assist you in the exploration of your grief, share experiences, and learn about compassionate grieving practices.
To gather together a supportive community to walk alongside and companion you in this journey.
To offer you some measure of comfort knowing you are not alone in your grief.
