We Can Help
Here at Share, we want you to know we see you. We see your immeasurable heartache, your outpouring of love and grief for your baby, and your courageous steps toward healing after your loss. We are here to help, with support, resources, and information. We are here to listen. You are not alone.
If you are in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, please join us for an in-person support group the second Tuesday of every month, 7pm at the National Share Office, 402 Jackson St. St. Charles, MO 63301. For more information, please contact Jenn Stachula at email@example.com. If you are not in the area or can't make it to the in-person group, please join us over Zoom on the third Monday of the month at 11am. Contact, Patti Budnik, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Due to the sensitive nature of these groups, please do not bring children/babies with you to our in-person or virtual groups.
COMFORT KITS AND SIBLING BAGS
Share provides comfort kits to families who have experienced a loss to provide hope and healing during the darkest days. These special boxes are available at burials, support groups and other Share events. The sibling bags are designed to help children cope with the loss of a brother or sister.
We are here to listen and support you.

The loss of a baby is a deeply painful experience that many families experience daily. Sadly, support and understanding from extended family, friends, and coworkers can often include hurtful comments and a push to 'move on.' Having peer support beyond the families social circle can help parents feel less isolated and understand that many of their emotions and experiences are common in grieving the death of their baby.
It can be hard to talk about, but the more open we are, the better we can serve bereaved parents and their family. A parents love for their baby does not end. Having ongoing support and opportunities to honor their baby will be forever important. We as caregivers feel privileged to journey with a family as they grieve, heal, and continue the stories of their babies.
Share partners with hospitals, community organizations and bereaved parents nationwide to establish perinatal bereavement programs in their communities, known as Chapters. Share supports the community nationally with weekly online support group meetings, moderated parent Facebook pages, an online Sharing Magazine, and free parent and professional grief support resource packets.
