Roger Neilson House
The staff at Roger Neilson House are committed to providing bereavement support to families following the loss of their child, and throughout their subsequent “new normal” in their lives without their infant, child, or youth. Many families who experience a perinatal loss do have a desire to go on and plan for more children, or “Rainbow babies” as they are referred to within the community. There is growing evidence that these families would benefit from increased emotional support during their pregnancies, and be surrounded by other families who understand that during Rainbow pregnancies, it is possible to be anxious, happy, and sad all at the same time!
Criteria for group: RNH will be offering an open, monthly drop-in group for families who 1) have already accessed RNH services and 2) are currently pregnant and struggling emotionally during their Rainbow pregnancy. Topics will be explored including managing guilt, impact on relationships, managing the expectations of others, etc.
The group will be offered every first Wednesday of the month from 5:30pm – 7:00pm.
Please RSVP to: Carol Chevalier, MSW, RSW at firstname.lastname@example.org
Agenda topic for September 5, 2018: Facing anxiety, stress, and fear: What if it happens again?
