This support group is open to those grieving a pregnancy loss or the death of an infant 1 year or younger and is offered twice per month, once on zoom and once in-person. Attend either or both as it’s most helpful. No children’s programming is provided during this time and no childcare is available at in-person groups. Pre-registration is required for online groups and strongly suggested for in-person groups.
When: 2nd & 4th Thursdays of every month
Where: Alternates in-person & online
Time: 6:30-8pm CST
It isn’t uncommon for a parent’s arms to physically ache with emptiness. Through HEALing Embrace, special stuffed bears can be purchased to memorialize a baby who has died and bring comfort to a grieving parent or family.
Created with love and assembled by caring volunteers at the weight of the baby lost, these keepsake bears provide a surrogate that helps family members start their journey toward healing. This unique gift provides families with a physical connection to their newest member.
We also offer customizable care packages full of resources to bring hope and sooth a grieving heart. Items are hand-picked for the recipient individuals and families and include books, journals, activities, and self-care items appropriate to the relationship and type of loss.
“Dyl Bear has helped our empty arms feel less empty since Dylan died. I only got to hold Dylan for 2 days of her 43 days of life and it seemed as though it was years since I held her last when her weighted bear arrived in the mail. Our bear has allowed us to take family photos, go on adventures and feel like Dylan is right there with us. She’s always included and it’s so special. Nothing will ever take away the pain of losing our sweet girl, but having something to hold onto when we’re missing her is such a wonderful thing.”
