What's all this 'naming babies' stuff??
Are there 'in person' support groups? Right now, there are no neutral 'in person' support groups anywhere for PASS. The only neutral support groups are the ones run online, here at this website. There are also Individual Recovery steps you can use at this site, for healing on your own. There are "in person" religious PASS support groups, such as "Project Rachel" run by the Catholic Church, and some crisis pregnancy centers have post-abortion counseling available. To find a Project Rachel group near you, check the resources section. We are working on setting up guidelines for "In Person" groups, and once we have groups available, we'll be listing the contact person to find out where a group in your area is.
