Hadassah's Hospital in Ein Kerem Hosts Stillbirth Support Groups

Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center at Ein Kerem runs a support group for women who have had stillbirths--where a baby is born lifeless as a result of a miscarriage or a medically induced abortion.

Midwives from the hospital host five to six intimate group conversations in three to four support groups, hosted annually at the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem. During the meetings, the women share experiences and personal coping mechanisms in an effort to support one another and find closure.

"It is the only framework where we feel comfortable enough to express our true, painful feelings and grow out of this crisis," said one woman who participated.
