Balloons for our babies at a memorial event- 5/2013

You are not alone. 

If you have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss, you already know that navigating grief in our world can be a challenging experience. You may hear that one in four pregnancies ends in a loss, but you may not have a friend to turn to who can relate to the complicated feelings of grief you might be experiencing. Empty Arms is a community resource that works to connect families with one another so that people feel less alone. If you explore what we offer, you'll see that in addition to our support groups, we try to meet each family where they're at and provide them with whatever level of support feels comfortable and appropriate at that time. 

                                                                                                       Almost everyone who gets involved with Empty arms ends up with a new friend to meet for coffee, to exchange emails with, or to call when they need a listening ear who "gets it." Beyond offering people opportunities to network with each other, we also help them to find other resources to help them to grow and heal.

It is our belief that each person has the inner wisdom and courage to survive the loss of their baby without ever forgetting that baby.

We hope you'll take the time to see what we offer, and if you're grieving, we hope there is some way that we can help. 

Our calendar of upcoming Support Groups and Events...

And who do we mean when we say we? Certainly we mean our our staff and our board, but we also mean all of the families who have come through Empty Arms over the years and still actively participate in our meetings and events. Since we began as one support group in 2007, we have served hundreds of individuals from 35 communities in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Connecticut. 

We are the only Massachusetts chapter of the national organization Share, and we are grateful to have the expertise of such a long-existing Pregnancy and Infant Loss institution to support us in our work. If you live in Eastern Massachusetts and can't utilize our physical resources, please look at Hopeful Connections to find the groups around you. 

Please be in touch.
