Leaving the hospital with empty arms after losing a baby is devastating.
Local care providers have established programs with links to resources to help families through their tsunamis of grief.
Jen Barrows, a labor and delivery nurse, runs a grief support program at Lovelace Women’s Hospital.
“As a mother, I feel losing a baby is the most devastating thing that can happen. It’s grief for the baby who’s lost and especially grief for what this baby will never become,” Barrows says.
