Share Parents of Utah
Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. has been helping bereaved parents since 1977. Share is dedicated to supporting parents and families throughout the United States, as well as internationally. Share Parents of Utah was established in 1983 and supports the Salt Lake area.We understand. We care. We can help. Many parents find that it helps to talk with another parent who has experienced the loss of a baby – someone who can listen, understand, and be able to identify with some of their feelings. Talking with others who have suffered a pregnancy loss is very helpful. Anyone who has lost a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, or newborn death is welcome to call Share Parents of Utah and/or attend support group meetings. Just knowing that your experience is valid and that you are not alone can be very beneficial in working through your grief.Connect with Us Join us at our twice monthly support group meetings and connect with other parents who have suffered a similar loss. Also, throughout the year, we hold Workshops. These are RSVP ONLY events specifically for fathers, mothers, siblings, etc. Please continue to check this tab for updates on these special Workshops led by Dr. Jake Andreason.You can also find us on Facebook here. This is an open group, meaning anything you post on here may be seen by others on your news feed.
We have two closed groups that you may use for more personal conversations to help you vent and work through your grief. We invite anyone interested to also join these groups.
The first group is the Share Parents FB Support group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/329019060506027/) and is a general group for grief.
The other group is the Share Parents FB Pregnancy group for specific support for subsequent pregnancies (https://www.facebook.com/groups/326053507470465/).
