Peer Mentor - Pregnancy Loss, Infant Loss, and Infertility Peer Support

3-4 hours / monthly
1 year
Join us in creating a compassionate and supportive community for those navigating the complexities of pregnancy and infant loss.

We acknowledge that we live, work, and parent within Kanata (Canada). We recognize the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people of Canada, the impacts of colonization, and the lives, ceremonies, languages, and teachings lost. We work in the spirit of healing and reconciliation to honor those we have lost, those with us, and those yet to come.  We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

The Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Centre is a registered charity based in Calgary, Alberta serving the loss community worldwide.

Our mission is to support and connect individuals of all identities, backgrounds or circumstances, who have experienced the trauma around miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for medical reasons (TFMR), neonatal loss, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), or infertility.

We acknowledge that the journey through loss towards healing is as complex as it is individual. As such, we offer no-cost pathways to healing including a helpline, peer support, and professional coaching/counselling.
