Support Groups for Infant Loss and Miscarriage in Arizona

We know that losing a child under any circumstance is heartbreaking and unbearable. We have been talking about infant loss and miscarriage this month, and given some insight over on our Youtube channel on grieving after your loss.

We wanted to give some resources of local support groups in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. When a tragedy like this occurs, we encourage you to reach out to a support group, a therapist, or a friend. No one should have to go through something like this alone. And the more you can find support during this difficult time the better.

We’ve pooled some resources together, and we want to share them with you.

Of course we have wonderful therapists here at Biltmore Psychology and Counseling, who specialize in grief and loss. You can read about our team here and call the office with any questions you might have! We’re located in the Biltmore area of Phoenix, and our contact phone is 480-999-7070.
