Pregnancy & Infant Loss Grief and Remembrance Community
our_angels is a moderated members-only community for parents and family members of infants lost to miscarriage, prematurity, stillbirth and infant death. This community was created with the intention of being a safe place of support for us to share our experiences with loss and the grief process. We're here to support you and be a resource. We extend our condolences and welcome you to the community.

Please note: If your request to join was denied, please contact caramaea.

In an effort to prevent trolling, all users who request membership are screened to determine legitimacy. We understand that some people may not want their loss(es) to be public, but if it can not be determined that you have experienced a loss, your request will be denied. You will need to contact caramaea to explain why you want to join the community before your request can be approved. Thank you.

Support for Those Who Are Trying Again

We ask that if you are currently trying again or are already pregnant to please put any sensitive material behind a cut or refrain from posting it. While we certainly share in your joy and understand your fears, pregnancy may be too sensitive to talk about here. Please be respectful of that when you post. Thank you.
