Heartstrings to Offer Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Group
Heartstrings will offer a pregnancy and infant loss support group beginning Thursday, March 5 in High Point. The eight-week support group will meet on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. through May 21 at Hospice Home (Hospice of the Piedmont), 1801 Westchester Drive.
The group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a baby from conception to 1 year of age. Participants will have an opportunity to meet other mothers and fathers who have experienced a similar type of loss. They will also learn about the emotions of grief and its impact on relationships with family and friends, ways to memorialize their baby, and ways to nurture themselves. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. A participant fee of $15 per meeting applies for each parent. Scholarship funds are available. For registration and more information, visit heartstringssupport.org or call 335-9931.
Heartstrings is a nonprofit organization that strives to provide validation, encouragement and grief-related education to Triad parents who have experienced pregnancy, infant and child loss through peer-based support groups and one-to-one mentor support.
