Usually what we do at AustinBorn is all about preparing for and coping with the joy of parenthood -- of bringing a new life into the world and finding the way along the journey of loving and caring for a baby. Sometimes our support of new parents looks different.
As doulas, as friends, and as women who have experienced infertility and loss ourselves, we wanted to be able to offer some way to help these families and many more like them in our community on their journey of healing. So we dreamed up a ceremony, a time of sharing and support for families who have experienced loss. The Healing Group: Ceremony for Loss is an evening of nonjudgmental support, processing and ritual surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss, and is appropriate for any parent, no matter how recent or long ago the loss or whether it was spontaneous or elective.
This experience can bring on a wave of intense and overwhelming emotions and we want you to know you are not alone.
- Offered on the 1st Sunday evening every April, August, and December of each year.
- Please join us, and/or extend the invitation to those you know in and around Austin who might find comfort in this kind of ceremony.
- This evening ceremony is free.
- Open to both mothers and fathers.
