You should know that you are meant to be here. You belong here. This is a safe place for you. We might not know exactly what you're going through, but you are joining a community of people who have walked a similar road, and are waiting to walk this road with you. Nobody walks down this path in the same way, and hopefully nobody walks down this path alone.

Nothing makes losing a pregnancy, infant, or child in the womb easy. The Hope In Loss Ministry offers a place for healing and companionship as you process your grief, and how your life continues. We welcome you to look around, take advantage of any resources you find, and above all to know that we are here for you, that you are not alone, that there is help and there is hope.

Hope In Loss is an independent ministry supported by the Diocese of Des Moines, but we welcome all visitors to our site, resources, and events. 

Take hope, you are not alone.
