Bereavement birth companion, hospital assistance, NICU support, planning, presenting valuable resources, and continued methods of support are only a few of the many services Harlynn’s Heart offers to families in their time of grieving and need.

The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.
