Grief and Loss Support
The loss of a baby can be devastating. The good news is that help is available to Minnesota families who have experienced a stillbirth (pregnancy loss) or an infant death. In 2019, MDH contracted with Star Legacy Foundation to connect families who have experienced an infant death or a stillbirth to grief and loss support services. To learn more about the services available through this contract, visit Star Legacy Foundation or call 952-715-7731.
