There is no need to register – our free support group meets the second Tuesday of every month at the Lamaze Family Center Ann Arbor from 7:00-9:00pm. Please note that we have moved! Our new address after 11/01/11  is 2855 Boardwalk, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. 

Mothers, fathers, relatives, and friends-anyone affected by a loss- are encouraged to attend.

Please call our office at 734.973.1014 with any questions.

Experiencing a miscarriage or the death of a newborn is a sad and difficult event. You may feel a loss of joy and hope. The Mary G. Schuman Miscarriage and Newborn Loss Support Group is for mothers, fathers, relatives, and friends- anyone affected by a miscarriage, stillbirth, early infant death, or other perinatal loss.

For over 30 years, we have provided a setting where you can share your experiences, give and receive support, and learn to cope with your feelings about your loss. You may share with the group or not, as you wish. Information shared at group meetings is private and confidential.

Due to the emotional nature of the discussions in the group, we do not allow children to attend. We believe this is in the best interest of the children and the other families present.

Our group facilitators have training and personal experience with perinatal loss.

We also offer reading recommendations and a lending library, memorial service, referrals to professionals and clergy, and community education and in-service trainings.
