Grieving Pregnancy Loss Together in Community

Kindred Grief Care

Kindred is a ministry for women that exists to hold space for grieving parents. Whether you’ve experienced a miscarriage or stillborn birth, are post-abortive, or placed your child for adoption, your journey and your grief matters. We’re here to walk with you in community to make sense of the pain and see it transformed into something beautiful.

Transformational healing groups for women who have gone through abortion.

A healing retreat for women who’ve experienced
miscarriage and stillbirth.

Watch Malinda’s Story

Heart graduates are a powerful example that, when caring communities come close to a hurting neighbor, Christ’s compassion can bring holistic help and healing to the broken.

Malinda was able to overcome cycles of sin, pain, and loss and find forgiveness and healing from her abortions.

Women are gathering all over the city to experience freedom from the burden of past abortion and forms of pregnancy loss.

Kindred Grief Care is a non-denominational ministry of First Image that serves individuals and churches, and we have a vision to see women healed from the pain that results from pregnancy loss.

We know that each of these losses, abortion, miscarriage, and adoption holds a very specific kind of grief, and we want to walk with you towards a place of healing and wholeness.

“I am so thankful for the ministry of Heart that God used to change my life, and I am so thankful to all who minister God’s unconditional love to the hurting in our community.”
