Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Program
Pregnancy and infant loss are tragedies that no expectant or new parent is prepared to face. If your baby has died, you may be overwhelmed by the depth of your emotions, have many unanswered questions, and may not know how you are going to cope with the heartbreak you are feeling.
Despite the staggering statistic that 10 to 15 percent of confirmed pregnancies end in loss, many parents who are faced with a loss can feel very isolated. We want you to know that you are not alone.
Whether you are facing a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of your baby during the first few months of life, compassionate care is available to you at Englewood Health. Our team is here to provide support and a comprehensive array of resources to help you and your family honor your baby, cope with grief, and begin your journey toward healing.
