The Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade (HSCMD) is pleased to announce that we have become a Share Site. Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. is a national organization. Their mission is to serve those whose lives are touched by the tragic death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or in the first few months of life. For more information visit their website

Share Groups enable families to share in their sadness, find support and rebuild their hopes through connections, comfort and care. Share Groups provide an opportunity to come together with a community of other parents... to understand the experience of loss...and to see the uniqueness of each baby's life and their similar experiences. Share Groups create an atmosphere where grieving parents with similar experiences can come together and feel comfortable sharing their feelings about loss and their love for their babies.  Participation is absolutely free, voluntary and all information is kept confidential.
