Join us for our monthly in-person support groups for anyone who has experienced pregnancy loss (of any gestation, including TFMR) or infant loss. This group is for Moms, Dads, Nonbirththing Partners, and/or any other family members who need support after loss. We welcome you whether your loss was recent or decades ago- your grief and love for your baby needs support at all stages of life! You can expect a supportive group atmosphere led by a member of the loss community with experience in the mental health field. Group will start with a time of education focused on the month's theme, followed by time for sharing and community with each other, and ending with a short activity to promote healing. Childcare is provided.
Group will be facilitated by Alison (Ali) Ferrara, LCSW. Ali is a loss Mom and local therapist. Ali's first born, Mira, was diagnosed with several birth defects in utero that would make it impossible for her to survive outside the womb. Ali and her husband (Joe) chose to carry Mira to term to celebrate every moment of life they could with her. Mira lived for 53 minutes after birth, in the arms of her parents the entire time. After many treatments for secondary infertility, Ali and Joe welcomed a healthy son into their family. They all live together in Lititz with their dog and two cats. Ali is passionate about helping others through pregnancy/infant loss as she continues the lifelong journey of integrating grief and joy together in her own life.
