St. Joseph Regional Medical Center’s SHARE program provides support to individuals and families who have experienced loss through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or death of a newborn or child up to one year of age.
When someone experiences a perinatal loss, feelings of isolation, guilt and a sense that no one understands what they’re going through may occur. It is important to know that many others have known this type of loss; in fact, one in five pregnancies ends in a miscarriage, and one in 100 experience a stillbirth.
While perinatal loss is all too common, each grief journey is individual. We realize that it is often comforting to be with others who understand what you are going through, and we offer support through educational handouts, community events and small group meetings. Meetings are facilitated by a Registered Nurse educated in this type of loss, and there is no charge to participate in these meetings.
