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.
Second Thursday of each month. 6:30-8:30pm. Free.
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 any family member who may be seeking support. Participation is encouraged but no one is required to interact more than what is comfortable. The group is led by Marcia Villarreal who brings her experience in pregnancy, pregnancy loss, and motherhood.

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 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!
