I nfant Death
Website by Jeff Carr
Welcome to the MIS website
MIS 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 the D.C. Metro area that offers a compassionate and comforting setting in which to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences with other parents who truly understand.
Any time is the right time to contact MIS. Just email us:

October is Perinatal Loss Month. Most of our area hospitals sponsor Perinatal memorial services open to anyone. We started receiving dates from hospitals, so check the Calendar of Events section on the website for details. They start early this year, for instance MedStar Washington's date is Oct 1st!
