After months in the NICU at Stanford, my friend has just been giving the news that her 3 month old baby has only a few weeks to live. I live in TX so there is only so much I can do for her from here (and I'm 30 weeks so can't fly out) so want to compile resources for her, for after her baby boy passes.


Anyone know of a support group specifically for loss of a baby/child near her? (San Mateo) Or any other resources in the area?


Thank you so much, mamas.

Has she checked with the hospital?  They often have groups that meet right at the hospital.  I'm so very sorry and will keep your friend and her baby in my thoughts.
