Pregnancy Loss Support Program (PLSP)
for Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Newborn Death
Professionally trained PLSP volunteers offer nationwide telephone counseling and New York metropolitan area support groups for parents who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death, as well as to women who are pregnant following a loss. PLSP services are free of charge, open to the community, and non-sectarian. Our program is guided by a licensed social worker with extensive expertise in pregnancy loss.
Our professionally trained volunteers, who have been through our program following their own pregnancy losses, provide personal and prompt nationwide telephone counseling for men and women. Both male and female volunteers, as well as Spanish and English speaking counselors are available.
Peer Support Groups:
Following telephone counseling, bereaved parents in the New York metropolitan area may join our peer support groups which are facilitated by two trained volunteers who themselves have suffered a pregnancy loss. The sessions consist of the same small group of participants who return for each of the six weekly meetings together. At every meeting, a brief presentation is followed by an open discussion guided by our volunteer counselors. Topics include:
Support for Pregnancy After a Loss:
For those who are pregnant after a loss, telephone support services are available nationwide.
Our licensed social worker can make referrals to psychotherapists in the New York metropolitan area who specialize in perinatal loss.
