Yahoo! Email Support Lists For
Mothers ... Grandmothers
Breakaway Lists


I offer here two main online support groups and several breakaway lists.

The first support group/list is for Mothers who have experienced the death of their babies (via miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, pregnancy termination, stillbirth, neonatal death, and/or infant death). I started this list in May of 1999 as a safe place for both myself and other Moms to share our feelings and experiences.

It came to my attention that Grandmothers needed a support group/list, too, so in December of 1999, I started the support group for Grandmothers. Although there are many community support groups and quite a few online support groups for Mothers, there is next to no support for Grandmothers.

Each group of women needs their own place to share their very different experiences, with freedom for each support group to share in a safe and protected environment.

On September 19, 2000, I began the first two of what I'm calling Breakaway Lists. I had added several since, but on June 1, 2008, I made the decision to inactivate several of the lists because of inactivity. Here is what is currently available:
  • HBL-PAL (Pregnancy After Loss) ~ For subscribers of the original Mothers list who desire a community to discuss a current pregnancy, trying to conceive, or who may be considering either of these options in the future. Please note that you must be a current or past member of the Mothers list to subscribe to the PAL list. We do check for your membership status in the Mothers list prior to subbing to the PAL list.
  • NewBaby-SPAL Baby ~ For Mothers who have given birth after experiencing the death of one or more babies. (Honored Babies hosts this site but is not the list owner.)

Breakaway Lists are hosted at Yahoo Groups
(although they may or may not be publically listed there).
