We offer support during this difficult time. This support group is intended for women and their families who have experienced a loss through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillborn or newborn death.

The group meets the second Tuesday of each month from 7 - 8:15 p.m. at NSMC Salem Hospital in the Davenport 101 conference room (restored library; located on the first floor across from the elevators). No registration is necessary.
