The 92nd Street Y has started its first support group for women and couples who have suffered a miscarriage.
The next monthly meeting will be Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Y at Lexington Avenue and 92nd Street. The Y has waived its usual fees.
Zev Williams, the director of the Program for Early and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss at Montefiore Medical Center, will help lead the discussion. Williams said the group was started in part because miscarriage remains a taboo topic, and many women and couples feel isolated, guilty and alone. Williams said the meeting is for women and couples who suffer from miscarriage and will be attended by Williams and a psychologist who specializes in fertility issues.
