WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Bereaved Parents of Madison serves grieving parents and families who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
We know that saying good-bye to your babies is very isolating even with the best support systems. We understand that sometimes the best support can come from a stranger with a similar experience. We encourage moms, dads, and families to find support that is comfortable for them.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We offer personal and group support, as well as programs and events for families. We also provide education and awareness to the community through outreach programs and relationships with area hospitals. We strive to nurture healing and renew hope in these families throughout the grieving process.
- HUGS volunteers- Contacted by clinic and hospital staff when a family is experiencing a loss, our HUGS volunteers assist nursing staff by providing companionship for families, answering questions, and assisting nurses with creating keepsakes.
- Resources- While there are a wide variety of resources available, some of our members have shared some that they have found particularly useful.
- Crisis Support
- Support Events
- Education and Outreach
