There are no words for the loss of a pregnancy.

Join local parents in a shared experience of grief over pregnancy loss. Whether your loss was an early miscarriage (chemical pregnancy), blighted ovum, second trimester loss, stillborn, or any other type of loss, you are welcome. There is no loss unworthy of grieving.

Led by local Fertility Health Coach, Kayla Clark, this time will be focused on sharing experiences, asking questions, supporting peers, and examining techniques for working through grief while discussing when it may be time to get professional help.
