Default Other Loss Newsgroups?

I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. Such a brief little life,
but I am certain that he was loved every single moment of it.

I use the message boards at both the European and American
"Babycentre" and "Babycenter," where there are dozens of boards. Most
of course are on pregnancy, birth, and baby care, but there are a few
on grief and loss. Here is one I found for you on the European

I hope that link works, and that the group helps.
I will try to find another and post it here as well.
Take care during this awful time,

I found some more loss groups for you. The site I post below has a
list, under the heading "Grief and Loss," with several groups you
might find worth visiting. I hope that these can help you.;prod-bcjive-sessionid=SRWIJ2OTDC1EACUAQIZQYTQ#bbs-babygrief

Here is a listing of a few of my favorite loss sites. Please know that each
one of these sites also has a listing of their own links for loss, so that
you may surf from site to site. You may see some of the same links included
in each site for this reason.

Thank you both for the links, Shawna and Chele. I'll check these out
and continue lurking here as well.

Zachary would have been two months old on December 4th. It's a tough
week...maybe sharing his story in the near future will help me get my
thoughts together.

Hi Vanessa

Welcome to the newsgroup, I am so sorry to read that you have lost a
precious baby, that is just so desperately sad - that he lived for six****
days and didn't make it. My heart goes out to you, you must miss him
terribly. *

There are no other newsgroups specifically for pregnancy loss (yes amazing
isn't it?) but there are other web sites which have been posted already, I
have details of some in the support materials I've produced, which I will
include here, I hope that they help:

support group meetings, or on the Internet, depending on location and

their own experiences to help support other people via the Internet:
