Mom's Groups

At NFTS we believe in the healing power of coming together as girlfriends, sharing our stories, and celebrating our angels.  Led by local NFTS Angel Ambassadors, we are honored to host Quarterly Mom's Groups in 8 cities across Iowa!

While social distancing has likely taken many of us away from those we love, we recognize that families continue to experience infant loss during this already difficult time.  Although we cannot currently meet in person, it is important that you know that you are not alone.

Through these virtual Mom's Groups, we can connect with each other - grieving mothers across the country - and provide comfort during these unprecedented times.  Just like our in-person meetings, we will share our stories.  We will cry.  We will laugh.  We’ll raise our glasses (of wine).

But most importantly, we’ll celebrate our angels.

Join us on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 7-9pm CST.
