I recently launched a new community for bereaved parents, Sea Glass Parenting, on Facebook. While I hope you will join, I have also scoured Facebook for other groups related to child loss and grief. Each group is administered in a slightly unique way, and I have provided notes where I think specific aspects are relevant.

I’ve also categorized groups based on size:

Small group – under 1K
Medium group – 1-5K
Large group – 5-10K
Extra large group – 10K+

In general, I have not listed a group with under 1000 members unless it is providing a unique type of support not offered by a larger group.

If you know of a group not listed here, please comment below or contact me.
