Parents Responding to Infant Death Experience
P.R.I.D.E. is an intervention team of nurses, chaplains, and social workers who are available to answer any questions you might have about your experience with miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or neonatal death and support you through the grief processes. PRIDE’s goal is to reach grieving families at all stages in their grief, whether it is at the time of loss or in the years following.
If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a message on the PRIDE services voicemail at 405-515-3520. Voicemails will be checked weekly on Wednesdays.
