Surviving Pregnancy and Infant Loss: Journeys towards Healing & Hope

Join us during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month to learn about the complicated experience of perinatal loss. You will hear from panelists who have had first-hand experience with this type of loss, either as professionals who work in the field or due to their own loss and experience counseling others. An inclusive, non-religious program operated by the National Council of Jewish Women New York, the Pregnancy Loss Support Program (PLSP, at www.pregnancyloss.org) provides a safe space for bereaved parents. Through one-on-one counseling and participation in support groups, they receive support from professionally trained volunteer peer counselors who themselves have experienced a loss. This is an opportunity for bereaved parents who have suffered a pregnancy or infant loss, along with those who love and support them, to hear from others who have “walked in their shoes” and can share their own perspective and stories.

When: Wednesday, October 26 7 – 8:30 PM EST

Where: Zoom

Free to attend, or with an optional donation to support COPE families. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated
