The Footprints on the Heart Program provides bereavement support staff at multiple hospital locations. These experienced professionals offer individual counseling for patients who have experienced infant loss. When you speak with our associates, they will:
- Discuss with you the issues surrounding the loss of a baby
- Find ways to help you cope with your feelings of loss
- Teach you how you can memorialize your baby
- Help you to find others who can also help with your journey towards healing
