"We never thought for a moment that, instead of a crib, we'd need a casket. Instead of reading books on parenting, we'd be reading prayer and sympathy cards."
When birth and death occur close together the loss can seem unbearable. BFO-HB provides a 10 week support group for parents who have experienced a miscarriage, still birth, or the death of an infant. Each week, a different topic is discussed. Sessions are open to moms, dads, couples and singles who have experienced the death of their baby.
Q: When should you begin?
A: Whenever you are ready. Participants may include:
- Mothers and/or fathers whose loss is recent.
- Mothers and/or fathers whose loss was some time ago.
- Families who are coping with a subsequent pregnancy.
Our group support programs are facilitated by professionally trained bereaved volunteers. All support programs are supervised by qualified professionals.
