Families in Kenora -- who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or infant -- may be getting some extra help from Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
"Being able to be in a room, or on the phone, with another family, who has had a similar experience helps them to learn how to incorporate the loss of their baby into their lives," says Michelle Lafontaine, who is the program manager for pregnancy and infant loss.
Lafontaine adds they have 18 such groups across the province. The local coalition held a meeting on Sunday at the Discovery Centre.
