A miscarriage (early pregnancy loss) is a naturally occurring, unexpected loss of pregnancy before the 20th week of pregnancy. Most miscarriages happen very early in the pregnancy, often before a woman even knows she is pregnant. There are many different causes, most of which cannot be prevented. Emotionally you may find yourself dealing with the feelings of sadness and grief. Please know our providers are available to speak with you regarding any physical or emotional concerns you may have. Pastoral care services are offered at all of our hospital locations as well. Counseling may help you cope with your grief. Later, if you do decide to try again, work closely with your health care provider to lower the risks. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. May you find grace and strength for your healing and recovery.
Infant Committal Ceremony
We invite you to attend the CHI Health Infant Committal Service on Friday, April 23, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery located on Q Street between 46th & 48th Streets. This service will take place at the mausoleum near the Q Street entrance of the cemetery.
You are welcome to bring family members and friends who have shared in your loss. We ask that all people attending the service wear facial masks and observe safe physical distancing between households due to the continued presence of COVID-19 in our community.
For those unable to attend the committal service in person, a virtual live cast link will be provided by Heafey Hoffmann Dworak Cutler Mortuary.
Programs are available on the CHI Health Infant Bereavement website. The live cast is being recorded so families may go back and view it later if unable to view it live.
An Open Arms support group for grieving parents is available to you through CHI Health. If you are interested in this support group, please contact Cassie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
View the live cast virtual ceremony at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 23, 2021.
