These groups are peer-to-peer support and have moderators (meet the moderators).

The Trying to Conceive After Loss Support Group was formed by request and is open to moms who are trying to conceive after loss, to support their specific needs and journey. The Pregnancy After Loss Support Group is open to moms who are trying to conceive after a loss, moms pregnant again after a loss, or moms parenting their baby after a loss during the first year after birth. The Parenting After Loss Support Group was formed by request, specifically for moms who are parenting their baby after a loss during the first year after birth. The Pregnancy After Loss Support Group for Dads is for dads who are trying to conceive, expecting a child after a previous loss, or parenting their baby in the first year after a previous loss. The Pregnancy After Loss with No Living Children is for moms who have no living children and are trying to conceive or pregnant after loss. 

There are also Pregnancy After Loss groups that are broken down by the type of loss: Pregnancy After First Trimester LossPregnancy After Second Trimester LossPregnancy After Third Trimester LossPregnancy After Infant and Child DeathPregnancy After Termination for Medical Reasons (TFMR) (you must apply to join this group), and Pregnancy After Loss of a Multiple. While PALS will continue to moderate the main Pregnancy After Loss Support Group, we encourage moms to join the group that best fits your situation.

We also have a Pregnancy After Loss Family Support Group for grandparents, partners, family, and friends. It’s often so hard to know how to support moms through PAL, so we’re thrilled to offer this resource to families.

You must request to join these groups through Facebook. Please read the guidelines below. By requesting membership, you are agreeing to the following PALS Private Group Guidelines.
