Any type of loss is difficult for anybody, and the loss of a baby at any stage is incredibly difficult to grieve. Many people don't understand this kind of loss and our society has not developed a healthy way to process miscarriage, infertility struggles, and infant loss. This event is for those who have struggled to talk about their own loss or have struggled to grieve in a healthy way.

  • This is an opportunity to acknowledge your loss, mourn with hope and connect with others.

  • RSVP by Monday, October 1

  • Contact Amy Nelson with any questions.
