Sometimes our work at AustinBorn includes layers of support for families who have experienced the loss of a child. It's vital for parents to know that their pain is understood; that they are not alone; and, that there are safe spaces to engage in open dialogue about their loss. We hold space for the journey, validate the intricate and unique ways that grief manifests, listen without judgement or agenda, and provide resources for support. With that in mind, we have created The Gathering: For Loss Support, our community group for parents.
The Gathering is an evening of support 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. Our professional facilitator will guide parents through processing and normalizing grief, finding support, preparing for pregnancy after loss, and will open the space for families to share their journeys. This group is a space to share if you feel compelled, or to simply be in the space with others.
Come fold in to a community of people who care deeply for your experience and, in many instances, share in similar joys and struggles.
