This group is for parents who have undergone a pregnancy termination due to a poor prenatal diagnosis, problems with the mother’s health, or for the health of another fetus. If you have had a pregnancy termination for medical reasons, we are here for you. Those who face this tragedy often feel isolated and do not find the support given to those suffering other types of infant loss. We hope that this group will provide a safe place of encouragement, validation, hope and healing.
