Hope after Loss
A new group for women who have experienced a stillborn or infant loss
Over the past year, there has been an increase in the number of women reaching out to us in need of support after experiencing a stillbirth or infant loss. According to the CDC, 1 in 175 births are stillborn and the infant mortality rate in 2020 was 5.4 deaths out of 1,000 live births.
Our group is designed to honor the children and support the mothers by providing a holistic healing approach through a combination of clinical and spiritual practices rooted in a community of women who understand based on shared experiences.
CARRYWELL launched our first Hope after Loss Group on September 12th with an abundance of support from the community, hospitals, and grief counselors.
We Wrote a Book
Waiting Faithfully Together is for couples experiencing infertility.
Did you know couples who struggle with infertility and remain childless are three times more likely to divorce?
CARRYWELL is taking steps to support couples so they do not fall into this statistic. We know the importance of a strong marriage and want to ensure couples are building a family on a firm foundation and one that aligns with God’s spiritual order.
The book, Waiting Faithfully Together, focuses on how to strengthen marriages during one of the most difficult experiences couples face, infertility and loss. In the book, we study the infertile couples of the Bible and how their communication styles, roles, priorities, and coping mechanisms impact their relationship.
