Every Life Has Meaning

Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. - John 14:27

If you have learned that your unborn baby may not survive or may die shortly after birth, we at Ascension Columbia St. Mary's are truly sorry and are here to support you during this difficult time.

The Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Perinatal Hospice is a program of assistance and support for you and your family, beginning with your baby's diagnosis and continuing to having your baby and beyond.
