Support When It's Needed Most
Each year in the United States, a staggering one million families experience a miscarriage, stillbirth, or newborn death. One in every 3-4 pregnancies ends in a loss. Historically, these losses are seldom talked about, much less acknowledged, leaving these families to suffer heartache and isolation without support.
The special needs of these parents, grandparents, and siblings led CHI St. Vincent Health to create Journey, a comprehensive program to guide families through the first year following a loss. We also help women who have suffered a loss address any fear of subsequent pregnancies.
Journey, A Program To Meet Your Needs
Journey, serves as a national model for excellence in patient care. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has named Journey as an exemplar for exceeding the standard for how nurses use resources to meet the unique needs of patients.
Journey provides support not only during times of immediate crisis for families, but also ensures follow-up care, referrals to counseling, ongoing support groups and annual community events. The program's mission is to support grieving families holistically, to support and educate the CHI St. Vincent staff who care for them and to promote community awareness about pregnancy and infant loss.
