Grieving Together 

Grieving the death of your child as a couple can put many unforeseen pressures and challenges on your relationship. Join us for an insightful evening as we share different strategies for healing and growing together.


Meet two of our Grieving Together speakers:

"My name is Valeria and my husband’s name is Cristian. We’ve been happily married since 2018 and began our life together. Our love for travel took us to many places before the pandemic caused a world wide shut down.

In May of 2020 we decided to take the step in expanding our family and became pregnant right away and to our surprise we were expecting a baby girl. Everything was going great until at 5 months I began having contractions, we rushed to the hospital and on Oct. 5, 2020 we welcomed our baby girl Lucia who also passed away that very same day. We were filled with such heavy grief. A grief that we know will last a lifetime as our love for Lucia.

When you know someone else who has gone through baby or infant loss it makes you feel less alone in your grief. It is a horrible group to be a part of but the support and hearing other peoples’ grief journeys has helped us feel seen and understood. We know that in sharing our story we are able to honor Lucia and help other families along the way."


Event updates will be posted on The Haven's Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you there!
