For Parents

No two people experience such a loss in the same way. Our losses and circumstances differ. And yet, we have much in common.

Dear Parents

For Family & Friends

For those who wish to provide true comfort to friends or relatives who have lost a baby or a pregnancy.

Start with Understanding

For Care Providers

 As a caregiver, you provide a level of care and sensitivity that can greatly affect the course of a family’s grieving process.

HAND families and supporters -- we need your help!

Our longtime and beloved grief meeting facilitator, Nadine, has been doing both monthly meetings on her own for quite some time now. She very much needs an assistant to help set up and clean up, and to help run meetings alongside her. We just ask that the volunteer has experienced neonatal loss themselves and that they are at least a year past the date of their initial loss.

Can you help? Just a few hours a month would mean the world to us and to the parents who feel so alone in their grief.

If interested, please comment below, message us, or email us at volunteer@handonline.org
