Triad Community Resources

 

 

There are several community resources available for support and fellowship outside of Heartstrings.  Here is a growing list:

 

Face2Face Piedmont NC

Providing "face2face" communication for parents who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss.  This is a group that provides support and understanding between families that have suffered the loss of a child. It is a place to safely and openly talk about your child(ren) and the emotions that you're feeling on your journey through grief.

Miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss is a topic that no one ever seems to want to discuss. So when it happens, the "baby loss parents" feel isolated, lonely, and sometimes even rejected from society. It is my hope that this group will show you that you are not and will never be alone. ♥

Our meeting places will be in the Piedmont NC area, including Greensboro, Winston Salem, and High Point. People in surrounding areas are certainly welcome, as well!
