Stillbirth & Newborn Loss

Losing a pregnancy or a baby at any stage is an emotionally difficult experience. We have resources to help you through this time.
 
Stillbirth

Following a stillbirth, you may have a range of emotions - numbness, sadness, anger, guilt and regret. Taking the time to understand your feelings may help you through the grieving process.

If you are in the hospital, check with your nurse or care provider about support from social workers and spiritual care staff.

If you are at home, call our Social Work services at 604 875 2149 to connect with a counsellor who can help you find resources.
Parents in BC who are grieving the loss of a pregnancy or baby can join the biweekly Perinatal Loss Support Group in-person (call 604.875.3788).
