Pregnancy After Loss Support (PALS) Bereavement Support Group 
On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, the PALS Bereavement Support Group meets.This support group is for women who are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant after experiencing the loss of a pregnancy. In preparation for the winter season ahead of us, we would like to inform everyone that if schools in the area are closed due to inclement weather, our bereavement support groups will also be cancelled. If you are unsure whether the groups will meet or not, please call before coming.

Resolved Through Sharing (RTS) Bereavement Support Group 
On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, the RTS Bereavement Support Group meets. This support group is specific for women who have had a miscarriage, stillbirth and/or newborn death. This is an informal support group session where families are encouraged to share their experiences. Sharing helps healing. By sharing, you feel relieved and your stories may help others heal, too. Please contact       812-842-4574 no later than the Monday before the Tuesday meeting to sign up.

John K. Berry, MD - Garden of Peace
Dr. John Berry was a very special person to all who knew him. As a physician, his profession brought him into so many people's lives and his kindness will stay with his patients, friends and family forever. Dr. Berry also had a special connection with families who lost a child. The comfort, support and compassion he provided for them went far beyond what they expected.

Dr. Berry passed away in December 2005. His wife, Kathy, wanted to create a lasting tribute to the man who was so important to so many. The Women's Hospital is proud to honor this dedicated physician and wonderful man with the Garden of Peace. It is a touching reminder of Dr. Berry for his friends and family, and it offers a quiet place of spiritual buoyancy for The Women's Hospital’s patients for years to come. The John K. Berry, M.D. Garden of Peace is located south of The Women's Hospital Main Entrance.

Patients or visitors who wish to purchase a customized brick for the John K. Berry, M.D. Garden of Peace may do so through the Deaconess Foundation.
