Perinatal Bereavement

Perinatal Bereavement

Loss of a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or neonatal death may cause feelings of grief, helplessness, shock and numbness. At PinnacleHealth, we understand that you are going through a difficult time. Our nurses and social workers will provide the individualized support and resources you need to work through your grief.

Support Group

If you are grieving the loss of your baby, PinnacleHealth offers a support group that may be able to help.

Heartstrings is a perinatal bereavement support group for those who have experienced a pregnancy loss or death of a newborn. You are welcome to join us, no matter where you are in your grief process or how long it has been since your loss. You may choose to talk or just listen. Meetings typically include brief presentations and time for sharing. A registered nurse, who is also a perinatal bereavement counselor, facilitates the meeting. The group meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 7 to 8:30 p.m.  For more information please contact Liz Shaeffer at (717) 231-8472
