Why:  We want to once again make peer support available to those that have experienced the death of an infant that has been classified as suddend and unexpected (e.g. SIDS, SUID, SUDI, etc).   These meetings offer a safe place to come to talk and share with others that can relate to what you may be going through or have gone through in the past surrounding the loss of your child.

You do not have to RSVP if you wish to attend.  

Please feel free to just show up and chat or just listen.

If this date does not work for you or peer support is not a fit at this time, please know that our meetings will always be open for you to join in at any time.
