Mothers of Baby Angels

My friend, Robin Huffman, and I are starting up a bereavement group for mother's who have lost a baby. Our first meeting is next week. If you or a friend would like to attend, please pass along the following information:

Mothers of Baby Angels
We would like to share with you a new support group that will begin in March 2013. This support group will reach out to mothers who have lost their babies. This support group will be open to all mothers who have experienced the death of a baby from any cause. Our hope is to reach out to seasoned grievers as well as the newly bereaved. By meeting once a month, group members will be free to talk about their children who have died; the emotions they are going through; the painful, tho...ughtless comments that may have been made to them; discussing their feelings of sadness, guilt, or anger—subjects no one else wants to hear them talk about. We will also discuss the progress they are making and ways of coping that have been helpful to them. This group will honor all religious and non-religious affiliations. Meetings will be held in a church facility.
Oftentimes, mothers feel they are coping effectively with their loss, as well as those discouraged by a lack of progress. We understand that there are no instant solutions, no easy answers, and no timetable for grieving. There is comfort in the sense of direction found through knowledge and understanding of the grief experience. Bereaved mothers are able to find hope, healing, and the will to survive. We hope to help each other through those milestone dates, those hard to handle holidays and even those “I can’t get out of bed” kind of days.
Our first meeting will be all about meeting you and your baby(ies). Please feel free to bring pictures, ultrasound photos, and /or a favorite piece of memorabilia. We hope that you find a sense of peace in talking about your child, like we do.
If you have any questions please contact Robin Huffman (574-721-3367) or Mandy Hall (765-532-0808) RSVP’s are welcome, but not needed
