Pregnancy and Infant Loss & Grief Support

Pregnancy and Infant Loss - Hands Touching

The MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital Perinatal Grief and Loss program offers compassionate care and help when you are faced with the death of your baby.

We form a partnership with you and your family to provide support and advice through the most difficult time of your life with immediate, short or long term assistance.

The Empty Arms Program provides as much or as little support you and your family may need. Some of the support offerings are:

  • Photographs for services via CD
  • Remembrance letters on key dates
  • Individual or group support sessions
  • Annual Memorial gathering
  • Holiday support


There are so many emotions during this time that the smallest detail can easily be overlooked. Provided are a variety of resources to assist you in final arrangements, coping with grief for you and your family as well as some reading and website suggestions.
