From Seed to Tree: Developing Community Support for Perinatally Bereaved Mothers
Despite burgeoning evidence on the positive effects of perinatal loss support groups, some communities still lack such services. Those wishing to begin a support group may find the task daunting, especially if there is little support for their efforts. In this article, the authors discuss the development of a pregnancy loss support group, which included a community assessment, launching a pilot program, and providing training for facilitators. Other practical considerations will also be reviewed, such as finding a location for the group and securing funding for advertising.
