Pregnancy After Loss Support moderates 14 online support groups on Facebook. These groups encourage peer-to-peer support during the all stages of pregnancy after loss, including trying to conceive, pregnancy, and parenting after loss.
PALS understands that there are also unique situations that could use extra support, so there are also groups for specific situations, including trimester of loss, no living children, termination for medical reasons, and infertility. PALS also moderate a group for dads and one for grandparents, family, and friends.
Our Facebook online support groups are closed groups. This means that only people who are members in the groups can see what you post or comment. People on your friend’s list may be able to see that you have joined the groups, though, either through your profile or through group recommendations from Facebook. Unfortunately, PALS has no control over those settings.
Support Group Guidelines
Here at PALS online support groups we hope to help women pregnant again after a loss choose hope over fear while nurturing their grief. In effort to do this we try our best to create a supportive open and welcoming community on our public and private Facebook pages and groups. Therefore, we strive to have our group be a place where differences in philosophies, beliefs, opinions, and parenting styles are welcomed and respected.
We love supporting you when you’re trying to conceive after a loss, celebrating pregnancy again, bringing home rainbow babies, and parenting after loss. We know how difficult this journey can be so please feel free to share pictures, journal entries, group posts and other creative ways to celebrate and support others on this journey through free expression of your story.
This is a peer-to-peer support group. Any information given in here is from other members and should not be considered medical advice. If you have medical concerns about your pregnancy please seek proper medical counsel. Also know that this private group is monitored but it might not be read all the time. We ask you as a member of the group to report any concerns that may seem to go against the philosophy or expectations of the group to us through a private Facebook message on our public Facebook page Pregnancy After Loss Support.
