Support Group Meetings

__________________________________________________________

The National Share Office hosts local support meetings at 402 Jackson in St. Charles, MO.  Meetings do not require membership, are free and are open to bereaved parents who have experienced the death of a baby due to early pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or in the first few months of life.  Friends and family of the bereaved are also welcome to attend.  Each meeting begins with introductions, followed by a topic of discussion, and then open sharing.  Interaction among the group is encouraged, however, no one is required to participate more than what is comfortable.   The group is facilitated by Cathi Lammert with the assistance of a Share Companion.  The meeting lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and child care is not provided.  Upcoming National Share Support Group Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
