Support Services

Becoming a new mom is an exciting time in life, but it can also be full of questions and concerns.  At St. Joseph’s Health, we strive to provide our new mothers with tools and resources to make the transition into motherhood as easy as possible. Be sure to also check out our Breastfeeding Services.

“Forever In My Heart” is a support group offered by St. Joseph’s University Medical Center. This parent led group offers caring support for grieving mothers and fathers who have experienced the loss of their baby during pregnancy (miscarriage), at birth or shortly thereafter. Parents can share with other parents who have experienced a pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn loss in a safe and comforting environment. Grandparents are also welcome to attend. Facilitators of the group have been trained and certified by the Resolve through Sharing (RTS) bereavement program. This program addresses individual family needs with supportive care and resources in the hospital and also through parent support groups.
