Conway Regional announces bereavement support group

The Conway Regional Perinatal Bereavement program has begun a new perinatal loss support group, called Healing Wings.

Healing Wings is for parents who have experienced a loss at any stage of pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death. The free support group is designed to become a parent-led, self-help group guided by professionals who attend the meetings to provide information and facilitate group discussion.

Healing Wings will meet from 2 to 4 p.m. the second Sunday of each month, beginning Sunday, March 12, at the Frauenthal Estate, located north of Conway Regional Medical Center at the corner of Western and Louvenia avenues.

The support group is an extension of the Conway Regional Perinatal Bereavement Program, which is designed to address a family’s individual needs through supportive care in the hospital as well as follow-up care.

For more information about the support group or perinatal bereavement services at Conway Regional, call Bereavement Coordinator Lesly James, LSW at 501.513.5228 or 501.697.5564.
