Pregnancy/Infant Loss Links and Support Groups
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Anchorage, Alaska, serving families and others throughout the United States, Canada and beyond. Our mission is, and always has been, to provide parent-to-parent support for all of us who have experienced the death of one or more of our twins or higher multiple birth children at any time from conception through birth, infancy and early childhood. It is also to assist extended families, caregivers, twins and multiples organizations and others who are seeking to understand and support the needs of parents with a multiple birth loss. While it is not officially in our mission, we have come to believe in the importance of greater education of the public on the risks and realities of multiple births, and how often they include tragedy and grief--and the importance of prevention of multiple birth loss.
The M.I.S.S. Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3, international organization which provides immediate and ongoing support to grieving families, empowerment through community volunteerism opportunities, public policy and legislative education, and programs to reduce infant and toddler death through research and education.

General Information about miscarriage and support
You've discovered a special place where you can find help as you grieve the loss of a family member or friend.
The Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance has a unique purpose: to provide a formal network and a unified national presence to increase awareness and education on the emotional experiences and needs of bereaved families. PLIDA's goal is to become a central place for parents, their concerned relatives and friends, and interested professionals, media, and policy makers to find information on the emotional aspects of pregnancy loss and infant death. PLIDA also organizes the biennial National Perinatal Bereavement Conference.
Even the best mental health professional cannot take away the stinging pain of a child's death. An effective grief-trained therapist will walk with you, help you connect with your feelings, and help you discover ways to cope with the overwhelming sense of loss.
The mission of Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. is to serve those whose lives are touched by the tragic death of a baby through early pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or in the first few months of life.
The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive. The Compassionate Friends is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. There is no religious affiliation and there are no membership dues or fees. The secret of TCF's success is simple: As seasoned grievers reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal. The vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.
