I saw one after my second loss. I was having such a hard time. When I started working out consistently I found that to be more helpful and talking to someone. Or at least talking to a stranger.

I've been thinking about it lately. I think I am going to wait until after the angelversaries and see how I'm coping first.

I spoke with hospice a few times, but found that I was moving through my grief okay.
I try to go to the monthly meetings of Compassionate Friends; I haven't been going a lot lately though because of my pregnancy, I just dont' want to hurt anyone's feelings.

Compassionate Friends is a world-wide organization that provides support for parents who have lost a child of any age whether it was a pregnancy loss or an adult child.

Caylee, do you find that women with PL actually use them? Do you have a website for the group?

For compassionate friends??

Our chapter is very small, there is about 4 of us regulars but a few parents trickle in and out. I think it was about 4 months ago, a couple came in who had suffered a pregnancy closs........

Compassionate Friends: The Compassionate Friends - Supporting Family After a Child Dies

They also have some chat rooms and I just noticed there is one specifically for pregnancy/infant loss...
Session Schedule & Entrance

I go to the Canadian website though since I am in Canada.

I haven't seen one that specializes in grief. I have talked to a counselor the last few weeks with things and it has been so helpful!!

I went to the TCF chat last night. It was really nice. I've book-marked it and will definitely use it in the future. I love that there's one every night of the week.
