Grief Workshops

Maddie’s Footprints is happy to offer quarterly workshops for anyone who has suffered a loss due to miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death. Workshops are informational seminars covering specific topics regarding grief. These workshops are free of charge and include breakfast and coffee. 

Our next workshop is Saturday, October 29th.  

The discussion will include a brief description of Maddie’s, basics of pregnancy loss, and how to find your physical, emotional, and family life again.  We are happy to be able to offer this Free workshop and are looking forward to allowing you to have a chance to listen to an expert, have questions if you choose, and hold space with others.
