Empty Arms Vermont Support Group
August 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
We host an open, peer-facilitated, support group to anyone who has experienced pregnancy or infant loss at any stage. Those who participate in group support are confirmed in the value of what they have lost and are given the freedom to grieve and heal at their own pace, using their own strength of character as well as the bonds of friendship as their tools.
When: 2nd Wednesdays of the month
Where: Online (email for a zoom link)
What about in-person meetings?
We are completely aware that as much as online meetings can help with accessibility and pandemic concerns, it does not give as much personal connection as meeting someone face-to-face. We will be hosting additional in-person meetings every couple of months that could focus on specific topics of grief, or simply be a gathering time to meet.
*While we wish to serve anyone who is a bereaved parent, we do try and limit this support group to individuals in Vermont, upstate NY, or friends who have personal connections with us locally.
