HEALing Together Support Groups

The death of a baby or the loss of a pregnancy brings pain and confusion for parents and families. After this type of loss, grief and bereavement can be a lonely, isolating experience. Sometimes family and friends — as much as they might wish to — don’t know how to help.

For this reason, parents who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal or childhood death can often find comfort in joining a support group.

“It took so much courage for me to walk into my first support group meeting. I was afraid I would cry or break down. What I soon realized when I looked around the room was that for the first time since my son died everyone around me understood my pain…they knew what I was feeling because they had felt it, too.” — Mom from Middletown

HEALing Together is a support group that was created at the request of parents who needed someone to share their pain, their sadness, and their broken dreams. The group provides parents the opportunity to share their feelings with others who have known the inconceivable sadness associated with the death of a baby.

HEALing Together is a self-help group, which means parents are there to help other bereaved parents. Meetings are open to all families regardless of where they may be in their grief or how long it has been since their loss. Individuals may choose to talk or to simply listen; no one is pressured to share, but if they would like to, the group is there to listen and be supportive.

Professionals who have experienced a loss and have extensive training in grief support facilitate the meetings. The format is informal and personalized to meet the needs of families.
