Connections One-to-One Peer Support


Grieving the death of a baby(ies) is a confusing and isolating journey that parents need not explore alone.  At the heart of our Connections program is the direct peer-based support on which Heartstrings was founded.  The benefit of having another person walk with you in your grief is significant. 

Through Connections, newly bereaved parents are carefully matched with a Connections Support Parent who has previously experienced a similar loss.  Support Parents are grieving parents who are at least one year from their loss and have completed our comprehensive Connections Support Parent training.

While a Connections match is arranged for a three (3) month period, many participants stay in touch with their Support Parent beyond that time, as deep support and close friendships can naturally develop during a Connections match. 

Parents interested in learning more about our Connections program are invited to complete an on-line registration form.  Once received, our Director of Support Services will contact you to further discuss your needs.
