Support for infant loss

Thu Nov 2, 2017, 7–9 pm EDT

SIDS Mid-Atlantic and Preemies Today sponsor a support group for anyone who has lost a baby. The group meets the first Thursday evening of every month from 7 to 9 pm at McLean Presbyterian Church, 1020 Balls Hill Road, McLean, Virginia.

The support group is free and open to anyone affected by the loss of a baby due to any cause. It is always helpful for the newly bereaved families to have the support of families who have "been through it."
