Hand to Hold understands that a high-risk pregnancy, a complicated birth, a NICU stay or the loss of a baby are very traumatic and isolating experiences. Find support at any stage of your journey through our virtual support groups, podcasts, private Facebook communities and Peer Mentor Program.
Virtual support groups allow families to access support at all stages of the NICU journey, from the comfort of your own home. To learn more about our Family Support Specialists hosting the groups, visit our staff page.
If you are a professional, and not a NICU parent, we kindly ask that you please respect the privacy of the families who join our groups by not registering for, and joining, a session. Having professionals in a peer support group changes the dynamics and impact for the parents involved as observers cannot participate from a place of lived experience
Wherever you are in your grief, we want you to know that you are not alone. There is a community of families ready to support you, whether it is today, a month from today, or a year from today.
No one understands what it’s like to suffer the loss of a baby like a parent who has been there. Hand to Hold trains and matches parents who have experienced a loss to provide peer support to bereaved families. If you have experienced a loss, you may request a Peer Mentor at any time.
