Perinatal Bereavement Group

On December 12, 2017 the Times Herald Record published an article on page 18
describing "ORMC starts perinatal bereavement group". It meets on the 1st
and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the ORMC
Community Health Education Center at 110 Crystal Run Road, Middletown.

"When pregnancy ends in a loss, many couples feel afraid, isolated, angry,
confused, disappointed and sad. Orange Regional's Perinatal Bereavement
Support Group provides families an opportunity to listen and/or share
their experiences in a comfortable and friendly environment. Orange
Regional's multidisciplinary team of child life specialists, social
workers, nurses, physicians and chaplains will provide physical, emotional
and spiritual support for parents mourning loss such as stillborn and
newborn death, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy after a loss, recurrent
loss and/or loss complicated by infertility."
