Aubrey's Advocate

Nothing is stronger than a mother fighting for her daughter's legacy. Through Julie's own personal experience with loss, she helps advocate for others in similar situations. "I am here to help your family organize and manage anything that you need so that you can focus on parenthood and the emotions that come with your grief. I am dedicated to obtaining the definitive answers and options that are hidden within the jargon of the insurance plan benefits and explanation documents. I recognize the stress of time spent looking for these answers and my goal is to lift this burden for you as much as I can; I know the importance of spending time with your baby and family. I am committed to exploring every option, and planning the necessary steps pertaining to the cost and payment of care. From direct assistance on calls to insurance companies, or providing this service on your behalf, I will ensure you receive answers and expectations in black and white. My mission is to advocate for you and your baby for whatever needs you may have that."

Sad Dads Club

Rob, Chris, and Jay are three friends living in Maine who, along with their wives, endured stillbirths. While the couples supported each other individually and as a group, the men quickly formed a deep bond over beers and tears. And so, from the ashes of stillbirth, the Sad Dads Club was born. It’s the worst club in the world, but the membership is the best. As the New York Times put it, “The men know one another’s stories and provide comfort on the birthdays of the children they lost.” That pretty much sums it up. We're navigating life after one of the most extraordinarily painful experiences that a parent can endure. Rather than walk a lonely road, we try to help carry each other through the darkest parts of this journey. We’re not experts. We’re just a group of Sad Dads who work every day to bring joy back into our lives while honoring the children we lost. If you are suffering from the grief of a stillborn child, please know that you’re not alone and that we’re here to help by creating a safe, open, and supportive space. #worstclubbestguys

Mom's Enduring Neonatal Death (M.E.N.D.)

M.E.N.D. is here to provide hope and healing through your journey after the loss of your baby. M.E.N.D. (Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death) is a Christian, non-profit organization that reaches out to families who have suffered the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant death. We publish free bi-monthly magazines, hold commemorative ceremonies, and host a variety of support groups throughout the nation. M.E.N.D. is a place for families to connect, share their unique story of loss, and learn to live life without your precious baby.  Together we are breaking down the barriers associated with the isolation and sadness of pregnancy and infant loss as we strive to turn our children's lives into legacies. For families who do not live near a chapter of M.E.N.D. or desire additional support between support group meetings, we offer a Nationwide Online Support Group on the third Thursday of each month at 8:00 p.m. CST.

Miscarriage, Infant Death, and Stillbirth (MIS)

MIS Share (Miscarriage, Infant loss, and Stillbirth) is a parent-led support network founded in 1981 to offer information, support, and comfort to grieving parents who have experienced the death of their baby during pregnancy, or after birth. We have a monthly support-group that offers a compassionate, comforting, and safe environment in which parents are free to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences with other parents who truly understand. From this mutual experience, at times, lifelong friendships are formed. Any time is the right time to contact MIS—whether you just experienced a loss last week, 20 years ago, or are a loved one supporting a parent struggling with their loss.
