Reproductive Loss & Support

Grief Support

1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death.

Have you experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant loss?

If you are a woman who has unexpectedly empty arms and a broken heart because of this pre-birth loss, we are sorry for your loss and you are not alone.

You may be experiencing a jumble of emotions that can include disbelief, anger, numbness, depression, and sadness. It may be hard to sleep or concentrate. Seeing other pregnant women and being around babies might be hard. This is really hard stuff you are dealing with, and these feelings are normal.

If you are having any thoughts to harm yourself or others, contact:

  • Suicide Hotline – call 988
  • Crisis Text Line – text HOME to 741741
  • Genesis Emergency Hotline – call (800)886-4508

It is important to remember that what you are experiencing is valid. Here are some things to remember:

  • Respect your needs and limitations.
  • Give yourself space and time to grieve and heal.
  • Focus on getting through one day at a time.
  • If you can, wait to make big decisions or life changes.
  • Be aware that setbacks will happen and some dates may be really hard… like holidays, baby showers, hearing birth stories, and the arrival of your own due date.
  • Don’t isolate yourself – find a safe support person that you can talk to honestly.
  • Eat and bathe every day.
  • Take care of your other physical and mental needs.
  • Know that it is ok to talk about and remember your baby.

Compassionate and timely care is available at Pregnancy Resources:

  • Physical and emotional wellness check with a licensed nurse.
  • Individual support that utilizes a 30-day devotional offering comfort and encouragement.
  • Small group, biblically-based, 10 week study designed to provide additional comfort and guidance in the midst of unexpected pregnancy loss.
