Together, Learning to Cope Support Group
The death of a child is almost incomprehensible. This is true whether a child has been living for many years, or several weeks, or a few minutes and even if the baby has died in the womb. Such pain wounds the heart so deeply that it never completely heals. Parents only learn to "live with" their loss; they never get over it.
Since 1975, the Birth Center and NICU have offered support to grieving parents who have lost a child by miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death. For the last fifteen years, the Together Learning to Cope (TLC) Committee has directed this process. Several employees also have assisted with the support group and other aspects of the program. We are very grateful for the loving care and guidance our colleagues have given to bereaved parents.
