Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Groups

Heartstrings provides valuable peer-based support groups for anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby(ies), from conception to one year of age.  Our Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Groups provide parents the opportunity to meet other bereaved parents, receive specific grief education and tell their story, as they honor the memory of their baby(ies).

Our Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Groups are held in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point and Kernersville.  Unique to Heartstrings, each of our support groups are facilitated by a licensed clinician and co-facilitated by a bereaved parent who has been trained in the Heartstrings Method©.

Each support group consists of eight (8) sessions that meet over a twelve (12) week time period, with a "follow up" session scheduled 4 - 6 weeks after the 8th session. All Heartstrings support groups are closed to new members after the second session, to allow for significant connection and healing among group members.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required for all support groups.

Parents interested in learning more about Heartstrings Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group are invited to complete an on-line registration form.  Once received, Heather Burress, BSW, Support Services Manager, will contact you to further discuss your needs. 

Due to the expanded support services Heartstrings currently provides throughout the Triad, it is necessary for support group participants to contribute a fee of  $15 per group meeting per couple or per parent and support person.  Total cost for two to attend the 9-meeting support group cycle is $135.    The $15 fee applies even if a participant attends without a support person or partner. Heartstrings does not handle insurance billing, but receipts for insurance reimbursement may be requested in order to be filed by the participant.  Scholarships may be requested for parents who are unable to cover the full participant fee.
