While the loss of a baby is something no mother or family should have to endure, it is with open arms and humble hearts that we offer support and heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Your baby will always be remembered.
Losing a baby is sad, life changing and at times, lonely. Each woman’s experience and feelings are unique and for some it can be helpful to talk to others that have an understanding of these feelings. Meeting other bereaved mothers and having a safe place to share, listen and find a peer support system is why Still Supported exists.
The Still Remembered Project formed Still Supported, a pregnancy/infant loss peer support group for bereaved mothers. The group meets once a month in the South Hills of Pittsburgh to give women a place to share and connect with others who are on a similar grief journey. We strive to educate women on grief and how grieving can be an emotional and physical process. Through group discussion, we are able to talk and explore our feelings, struggles and challenges of being in a “new normal” world after the loss of our babies. Our topics change each month and our mission is to touch on the many facets of grief.
We understand that coming to a support group can be intimidating at first. We encourage you to email us before attending your first meeting. That will help us learn a little more about you and give you the chance to ask any questions you might have about the group and our meetings.
The Still Supported group is facilitated by a committee of bereaved mothers who want you to feel comfortable and welcomed before you even walk through the doors of your first meeting. For some bereaved mothers, it takes time before they feel ready to attend a support group. We completely understand this. Support groups aren’t for everyone, each woman is different and is traveling their own grief journey. There is no right or wrong time to begin attending a support group.
