Dear Friends of Hygeia,

"It is the most amazing feeling to walk into a support group and feel your heart lift because you are finally in the one place where you can feel 'sane.'  Where you can feel understood, where you can relate to other women who have had the similar pain of loss, and where nobody will judge you."

These are the words of a bereaved mother who came to Hygeia following the death of her daughter.  Each year, hundreds and hundreds of grieving parents like her come to us in search of compassion and support.  We help all of these parents, completely free of charge.

We can only continue to help bereaved families with your financial support.  Your generous donation will enable us to:
  • Comfort grieving families through our program of support services, including our peer-to-peer support groups, phone and e-mail support, online message boards, and many other services
  • Educate professionals about pregnancy and newborn loss through our educational programs at medical centers, hospitals, colleges, and universities
  • Provide burial assistance to those who cannot afford to bury their children
Thank you for making a gift to Hygeia today.
