In addition to providing individual support to families grieving the loss of a child, Greta Gives Hopes plans to support the following the organizations who have helped us cope with losing Greta:
The program provides one-to-one help to parents who have experienced the loss of a baby by neonatal death, stillbirth, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or shortly after birth. It is led by a team of nurses, chaplains and others who are trained in perinatal grief education. The team offers support and comfort during and after hospitalization and as long as needed to provide ongoing support through the grief process.
The programs provides support groups for parents to meet with other parents who have experienced the same loss. The groups are open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby by neonatal death, stillbirth, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. Parents may attend at no cost, no matter where they are in their grief and no matter how long it has been since their loss.
Molly Bears creates weighted teddy bears for families coping with any form of infant loss. We were fortunate to receive a Molly Bear matching Greta’s exact weight. Holding our Molly Bear provides great comfort during difficult times. Greta Gives Hope plans to provide support to this wonderful organization by purchasing individual bears for families grieving the loss of their baby and by contributing direct financial support to Molly Bears.
