You are welcome here! This group is open to all adults who have experienced a miscarriage. We welcome people of all religious backgrounds and beliefs. We welcome people of all races and colours. We welcome people regardless of ability or disability. We welcome people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. We welcome YOU!
**Please note: While we are calling this a 'miscarriage' grief group, we are not abiding by the strict medical definition of a pregnancy loss prior to 20 weeks. If you have experienced a pregnancy loss after 20 weeks (which is counted as a stillbirth), you are welcome in this group. This group is, more accurately speaking, a support group for those who have experienced any type of pregnancy loss that may fall under some of the following terms: miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, or blighted ovum (anembryonic pregnancy).
This group is facilitated by Darren Dressler, MDiv, MA, CT who is Certified in Thanatology through the Association for Death Education and Counseling. He has also received a Certificate in Death and Grief Studies through the Center for Loss and Life Transition.
This is a service to our community provided by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, Airdrie
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4)
