One in four women in Colorado and one in three point five women nationally will suffer a pregnancy or newborn loss. These losses from miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death bring devastating consequences to parents and families. Research shows that without proper support, counseling, and education, the effects of these deaths may lead to:
• postpartum depression
• post-traumatic stress disorder
• substance abuse
• spousal abuse
• sibling abuse
• neglect of surviving children
Colorado Pregnancy & Newborn Loss Services (CPNL), a professionally staffed organization, has been meeting the needs of these parents and families in Colorado and surrounding states since 1980. “Healing Parents to Promote Healthy Families” is our mission, and over the last 36 years CPNL has helped over 8,000 families on the journey of healing from this loss, guiding parents to healthy subsequent pregnancies, adoption or to make other choices. CPNL meets this need through individual counseling, professionally facilitated support groups and phone support.
Colorado Pregnancy & Newborn Loss Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, honors HIPPA regulations by our private statement, and will enter all business associate agreements with HIPPA covered entities.
CPNL also offers in-services to hospitals, private medical offices and clinics and covers all Colorado communities for training and consultation.

Through CPNL’s Loss Support, participants can meet in a group setting or receive private counseling. The first step is a phone call. Medical providers can either refer patients directly through our brochures or call us and leave a confidential voicemail 24/7
For families entering a subsequent pregnancy, CPNL offers a Pregnancy After Loss (PAL) program. This program includes custom-designed classes taught by experienced, licensed Child Birth Educators, certified Doulas trained in subsequent pregnancy after loss birth, and professionally guided support groups to help with the high anxiety parents feel entering a pregnancy following a previous loss.
A new, recently added, support group is Transitions. In this group, postpartum families meet once per month for up to a year following their subsequent births to process their baby that has died with the new healthy baby they have delivered.
Spanish Speaking services are also provided.
Pregnancy Loss support groups meet twice per month. Pregnancy After Loss groups meet twice per month. Check out Services page for locations, times and registration information.
