Many parents find that it helps to talk with another parent who has experienced the loss of a baby – someone who can listen, understand, and be able to identify with some of their feelings. Talking with others who have suffered a pregnancy loss is very helpful. Anyone who has lost a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, or newborn-death is welcome to call Share Parents of Utah and/or attend support group meetings. Just knowing that their experience is valid and that they are not alone can be very beneficial in working through their grief.
