Perinatal Grief and Loss Program

Here for You During Your Time of Grief


The loss of a child can feel overwhelming. MultiCare’s Perinatal Grief and Loss program offers compassionate care and help when you are faced with the death of your baby.

We walk alongside you and your family to provide support and advice through the most difficult time of your life with immediate, short- and long-term assistance.

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

  • Photographs for services via SD card
  • Remembrance letters on key dates
  • Individual or one-on-one support upon request
  • Annual Memorial gathering
  • Holiday support


You’re dealing with so many emotions during this time that it can be hard to handle all of the details. But you are not alone — there are a number of resources to assist you in making final arrangements and to help you and your family cope with grief. NICU staff can provide resources to help with funeral arrangements.
