SHARE Pregnancy & Loss Support

SHARE is a resource for families whose baby has died through miscarriage, stillbirth, and early infant death. We have found that sharing experiences in a supportive, understanding environment with other parents who have experienced a similar loss can be a validating and healing experience. No registration is required and there is no fee to attend. Both men and women attend the group and meetings are for adults only. Parents who attend our support group meeting tell us it is very helpful in helping them cope with their loss.

Location: 835 S. Van Buren St., Green Bay
When: 2nd Thursday of each month, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Contact: St. Vincent Hospital (800) 236-3030
