Infant/Pregnancy Loss Support Group (WINGS)
This service is open to all parents in the community who’ve experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death. Support begins at the patient’s bedside and continues into the community through a group called WINGS (When I Need Grief Support). "When families hear the tragic news, everyone seems to struggle with what to say," says Dawn Travis, RN, patient care director of the Genesys Family Birthing Center. “Sometimes, ‘I’m sorry’ may be the best words.” Travis and her team of nurses obtained special training to help offer the right support at the right time for these grief-stricken families. Pam Montney, RN in the Genesys Family Birthing Center, oversees WINGS, which is open to moms, dads, grandparents and other relatives who are affected by the loss of a child. For more information on WINGS, call Genesys at 810-606-5897.
