Heart to Heart

GPS Group Peer Support™ For Pregnancy and Infant Loss

Losing a baby is devastating. We are so sorry you’re here, and we’re so glad you found us.

We are Lindsay and Jessica, two mothers who met years ago after we both lost our first babies. We created Heart to Heart to help other grieving parents feel less alone after miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal death. Using the GPS Group Peer Support model, we hold a safe space for you to share your complicated range of thoughts and feelings. In our circle, you can ugly-cry, seethe with fury, and even laugh at the improbable moments of humor that shine through the darkness. You are not alone, and we’re here for all of it. We’ve been there, too.

Our meetings on the 4th Wednesday of each month are free and open to babylost parents of all ages, backgrounds, religions, and circumstances. You belong at our table no matter how long ago your loss occurred.

To find out more about what you can expect from a meeting, reach out to Lindsay by phone or text or to Jessica by email

We are immensely grateful to Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services for providing us with an accessible, comfortable location for our meetings. The mission of KJFS is to strengthen the individual, enhance the family, and protect the vulnerable. KJFS staff and volunteers welcome you and your family to be a part of our community in whatever way feels right and meaningful to you. Parents of all faiths, backgrounds, and circumstances are welcome here.
