Late Loss Support Group

The Late Loss Support Group is an open virtual support group that will give you an opportunity to share your experiences and connect with other parents who have experienced a recent (within the past year) late pregnancy loss or neonatal death. Late pregnancy loss is defined as 20+ weeks and includes a still birth or loss due to incompatibility with life.

There is no fee to attend this group.
