“Initially, the service was attended by women who had experienced miscarriage or pre-term births. Now it is attended by moms, dads, grandparents, siblings and friends needing a way to acknowledge their pain from losing a child or to learn how to be helpful to others,” Melissa Moody said. “Our service provides a place to grieve, remember, heal and support those who have suffered the loss of a child.”
