Day Kimball Healthcare Introduces Local Chapter of Support Group for Those Suffering a Pregnancy or Infant Loss

PUTNAM, CT – Day Kimball Healthcare’s Maternal Child Health Department recently introduced a local chapter of the Share Our Memories Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Group. The group will begin on January 18, 2010 and will continue to meet the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Day Kimball Hospital’s RHF Conference Center.

The Share support group is a support resource of the national organization, Share, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. At Day Kimball, the group will be lead by Wendy Deloge, a community member who has been active in supporting parents who have lost an infant since she experienced the death of her newborn son many years ago. This group gives families a chance to get together with others who understand this specific loss and provides the support necessary for grieving.

“We at Day Kimball are pleased and honored to form a partnership with Wendy to begin a local chapter of this national organization,” said Mary Ellen Snyder, RN, operations coordinator of MCH. “It will be a big help to those in need.”

Registration is suggested but not required. For more information about this support group please call (860) 928-6541 x2247.
