To offer empathetic peer support to parents and their loved ones who are grieving the loss of a baby before, during or after birth.
We are a volunteer group of parents who have experienced the loss of a baby before, during or after birth. We offer empathetic peer support to other parents and their adult relatives and friends during the normal mourning following miscarriage, stillbirth, interruption of a wanted pregnancy due to a prenatal diagnosis or for maternal health, or infant death in the first year of life. HAND of the Bay Area is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all our services are free. We rely entirely on grants, donations, and volunteers to support our programs.
