Monthly Support Gatherings

One Moment provides a monthly support group for pregnancy and early infant loss. It is our intent to provide a safe place to grieve and to heal, regardless of where you are on your journey. The meetings are free and open to anyone who may be seeking support. Participation is encouraged but no one is required to interact more than what is comfortable.

Benefits of Peer Grief Support

  1. Emotional and physical support in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
  2. Support and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss.
  3. The opportunity to begin the healing process through sharing your own story and hearing the stories of others.
  4. Coping skills to help you through the most difficult days of your grief journey.
  5. Hope through companionship with people who “get it” and understand first-hand what you’re going through.
  6. The opportunity to discover new traditions and ideas to keep loved ones present in your hearts and in your memories.
  7. Increased understanding of how children and other family members react to loss.
  8. Permission to grieve and permission to live a happy productive life.

Bereavement Doula Services

What is a doula? A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth. A bereavement doula is a trained professional who provides similar yet highly specialized support during the labor and delivery of any birth, in any trimester, with any outcome.

Our co-founder and Executive Director, Marcia Villarreal, is a certified Stillbirthday Birth and Bereavement Doula. She has received intensive training to offer support during and after miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, difficult or fatal diagnoses, carrying to term, diagnosis/anticipatory grief, rainbow/live birth, NICU care, and more.

Key components of bereavement doula services include slowing down, validating, providing options, and supplementing with resources. Another essential tenet is helping a family say hello to their baby despite having to say goodbye.

While payment is not required to receive bereavement support, donations are appreciated to help keep this service available to all who need it.

We Need Your Help!

We are always in need of funding to support our outreach to bereaved parents. Please consider making a donation
in memory of your baby(ies). Thank you for helping us spread healing and hope!

Additional Support We Provide

Baby Blanket Donation

One Moment donated hand-made baby blankets to Valley View Hospital. These blankets were lovingly crocheted by Linda Cerise, one of our volunteers. We hope these blankets are a comfort to the bereaved parents who receive them.

Mother's Day Gifts

Each Mother's Day, One Moment gives special gifts to mothers who are attending our support group. This year, our gifts included a unique and hand-made “hope” key chain and a forget-me-not seed starter.

Remembrance Bracelet Making

We hosted a special bracelet making get together for Mother's Day. Each mama made her own bracelet in memory of her baby.
