Father 2 Father: Grieving Fathers Support Group

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group for Fathers

*** In-person support groups are temporarily suspended due to Covid-19. Check back to see when the group will resume. During this time we will be communicating and supporting each other on our peer-to-peer online support forum. To join this support forum/group, go to www.Facebook.com/groups/PAILFather2Father ***

This group normally meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at:

Brook Lane North Village (Room 116)

18714 N Village Shopping Center

Hagerstown, MD 21742

Father 2 Father is a monthly support group for fathers who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. This group is different than most pregnancy and infant loss support groups because it is led by a loss father and is for loss fathers.

Led by Rob Embly, father of an angel baby. For more information send Rob an email at [email protected]
