Bereavement Services in Southwest Michigan - Bronson Healthcare

Bereavement

Losing a loved one can be hard. When you’re going through a difficult time after experiencing loss, turn to the compassionate team at Bronson for support with the physical, emotional or mental response that comes with losing someone you care about.

Coping with pregnancy and infant loss

Sometimes the best way to cope is by sharing. That is why we have Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Group monthly meetings. These meetings are for those coping with the loss of a baby through miscarriage; if the child passes away in the womb, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and newborn or early infancy death.

We have many community partners that donate to our bereavement program at Bronson Methodist Hospital. These donations are just one part that makes a difference in your grief and recovery journey with us.
