About Us

What is SHARE

The mission of SHARE Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. is to serve those whose lives are touched by the tragic death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death.

The primary purpose is to provide support toward positive resolution of grief experienced at the time of/or following the death of a baby. This support encompasses emotional, physical, spiritual and social healing, as well as sustaining the family unit.

The secondary purpose of SHARE is to provide information, education, and resources on the needs and rights of bereaved parents and siblings. The objective is to aid those in the community, including family, friends, employers, members of the congregation, caregivers and others in their supportive role.

History of SHARE

SHARE began in the fall of 1977, at St. John’s Hospital, Springfield, Illinois. SHARE’s existence came about through the insistent urging of one bereaved parent and the work of several hospital staffers. Within four months, the first support group met. Since that time, SHARE has become international, with over 130 chapters.

Now located on the campus of St. Joseph Health Center, St. Charles, Missouri, the National SHARE Office serves as a resource center for bereaved parents, group leaders, caregivers and other interested persons.

Significant Events/Changes in SHARE History


The empty cradling arms encircled by SHARE represents the emptiness faced by families when a baby is lost through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or neonatal death. The heart within the circle shows the love and understanding that bereaved family members receive from the support of SHARE.

SHARE Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support, Inc. provides a circle of compassion that surrounds bereaved family members and caregivers as they face the tragic death of a baby.

We are grateful to Elizabeth Leach and Richard Paul Evans for their efforts, time and talents that have resulted in SHARE’s logo.
