Hospice of the Red River Valley is offering a new pregnancy and infant loss grief support group in Detroit Lakes, Minn. This is a free ongoing grief support group for anyone who has experienced the death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or in the first year of life. The purpose of this group is to provide compassionate grief support, understanding and resources to bereaved parents while allowing them to share their grief in a safe place with others who are experiencing a similar journey.

The support group will be held at the Hospice of the Red River Valley office located at 1111 Highway 10 in Detroit Lakes on the fourth Thursday of each month, starting on Sept. 24, 2015, from 6:30-8 p.m. Please note: In November and December, the group will be held on the third Thursday of the month because of the holidays.

This support group is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Heather Larson, bereavement specialist with Hospice of the Red River Valley, at (800) 237-4629 or bereavement@hrrv.org.
