Pockets of Light offers support to those who have experienced the loss of a baby before, during, or shortly after birth. We offer the following support services:
MISCARRIAGE SUPPORT GROUP
This group is a weekly drop-in group that offers a safe environment in which participants can openly share their feelings and thoughts after experiencing a miscarriage. We encourage couples to attend together.
STILLBIRTH & EARLY INFANT LOSS GROUP
This group is a closed, weekly group that typically runs for 7 consecutive weeks. Our trained facilitators, who have experienced loss themselves, offer a safe place for parents to share, listen, and remember their babies. We will touch on topics such as: the differences in grieving between men and women, managing family and friends, how to deal with doctors and nurses, how to cope with triggers and special occasions, as well as any other topics that are important to group members. We encourage couples to attend together.
INDIVIDUAL PEER SUPPORT
Many bereaved parents do not wish to share their thoughts and feelings with others following a loss. We understand and offer individual support to those who wish to speak one on one.
