Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network
Anywhere
Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) Network provides free bereavement support to families who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy at any stage, or the death of their baby, up to 12 months of age. We currently have volunteer opportunities for people who are approximately two years past their bereavement date and are looking for meaningful ways to offer their support to others. We are actively training peer supporters for bereavement groups and events, phone support, and for private online support groups.  
We currently have opportunities for volunteers to support families in person at a group, one-on-one on the phone, and online in a chat group. 
• To be there alongside the bereaved, showing that you care, want to offer support, have time to listen, and do not mind hearing their story many times over. 
• To be a good listener. By listening, you are helping the bereaved integrate their new reality and make sense of their loss. 
• Be empathetic to their experiences, helping them to identify their difficult, complicated and perhaps disturbing feelings. These may range from anger, guilt, fear, anxiety and helplessness. All of these feelings are natural, and are feelings you as a supporter may have experienced yourself. 
• To offer reassurance that what they are experiencing is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. You can be a positive presence in the bereaved’s life, and can show that over time they too may find ways to integrate the loss in their lives in positive ways. 
• To offer continuous, ongoing support. Grief is a process that is different for everyone, and has many ups and downs. Your support may be needed over many months. 
• To keep their confidence and offer reliable support. Bereaved people may need to feel “held,” and it is important that they know that you are able to contain a confidential, reliable, consistent environment for them to share in. 
• To know when you are out of your depth. Recognize when grief is becoming unresolved or pre-existing issues exist, and seek the advice of others to make appropriate referrals. 
• Understand that you have needs, too. Develop your own support networks and mechanisms that you can rely on when you have a difficult time or need to talk about feelings that may arise working in the role of a support person.
