MIS Share (Miscarriage, Infant loss, and Stillbirth) is a parent-led support network founded in 1981 to offer information, support, and comfort to grieving parents who have experienced the death of their baby during pregnancy, or after birth.
We have a monthly support-group meeting in Falls Church, VA that offers a compassionate, comforting, and safe environment in which parents are free to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences with other parents who truly understand. From this mutual experience, at times, lifelong friendships are formed.
Any time is the right time to contact MIS—whether you just experienced a loss last week, 20 years ago, or are a loved one supporting a parent struggling with their loss.
Most of our area hospitals sponsor Perinatal memorial services which are open to anyone. Find details on our calendar.
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) is holding a Remembrance walk the morning of Saturday, Oct 5th.
This is an opportunity to join with bereaved parents, families, and friends to commemorate all babies who sadly died too soon. ... To join the global 'Wave of Light', simply light a candle at 7pm local time on 15 October and leave it burning for at least one hour.
