About HAND


Helping After Neonatal Death (HAND) is a California non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, founded in 1981 to help parents, their families and their healthcare providers cope with the loss of a baby before, during, or after birth.

HAND is a resource network of parents, professionals, and supportive volunteers that offers a variety of services throughout Northern California and the Central Valley. There are no fees for our services. HAND relies entirely on donations to support its programs.

Through these pages, we hope to reach out beyond our local area to provide information and support to bereaved parents and the people who care for them.

Please contact us if we can be of assistance or if you would like any additional information.
