Pregnancy & Parenting After Loss (PAL) Support Group

This group does not allow student observations.
When: The 4th Tuesday of every month: 7–8 pm

Navigating a pregnancy after loss can bring unexpected challenges, fears, and emotions.  Cautious hope and joy is often overshadowed by the anxiety that arises.  We are here to support you through this time and allow space for your grief and your hope.

Northwest Suburban Pregnancy Loss Support Group

This group does not allow student observations.
When: Second Tuesday of the month: 7–8 pm
Where: Virtual

Nearly one in four pregnancies end in a loss. Many of these losses are left unspoken, leaving families to cope with their grief alone. This is a free support group for mothers, fathers, grandparents and friends who have experienced the loss of a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death.

We provide a safe space to express your feelings, grieve and feel supported by others who understand. Everyone grieves differently and at a different pace, and this group will honor your unique way. For more information, please call Kathryn Beam BSN, RNC-OB, at 847-618-8415.
