Grieving Families

Fetal Infant Mortality ReviewDo you need family support following a pregnancy loss or the loss of an infant?

When you have lost a child, especially an infant, it is easy to feel alone. You are not alone, and we can help you find your way through the grieving process. If you have suffered such a loss, The Fetal Infant Morality Review (FIMR) Program extends our deepest sympathy.

FIMR provides support to parents and families whose lives have been affected by the tragic death of a child or the loss of a pregnancy. We can provide:

  • Support needed for emotional, spiritual and social healing;
  • Referrals to resources needed immediately following a loss;
  • Information and emotional support to help you deal with grief and other emotions following the loss of a baby.

Fetal and Infant Loss Resources

The Healthy Start Coalition has created a booklet to help any family that has suffered a fetal or infant loss. To view and download this booklet, as well as other FIMR resources, visit our Publications Library.
