Perinatal Bereavement Support Group
Our Perinatal Bereavement Support Group if free to the community and meets the first and third Wednesday of each month from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the Orange Regional Medical Center Community Health Education Center, located at 110 Crystal Run Road, in Middletown, NY.
When a pregnancy ends in a loss many couples feel afraid, isolated, angry, confused, disappointed and sad. Orange Regional’s Perinatal Bereavement support group provides families an opportunity to listen and/or share their experiences in a comfortable and safe environment.
No matter where you are in the process of loss, grief or healing, Orange Regional’s multidisciplinary team of child life specialists, social workers, nurses, physicians and chaplains provide expert physical, emotional, and spiritual support for parents mourning loss such as:
- Stillborn and newborn death
- Miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy
- Subsequent pregnancy after a loss
- Recurrent loss
- Loss complicated by infertility

Support Groups & Classes
At Orange Regional Medical Center, we believe that the support system we provide to our community and patients is just as important as the clinical care that we provide. This is why we offer several support groups and community educational classes to our patients, who may be experiencing a variety of different hardships or currently undergoing surgery or oncology treatment.
