Our mission is to serve those touched by the death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or in the first months of life. Our purpose is to provide support toward healing at the time of or following the death of a baby. We provide education and resources on the needs and rights of bereaved parents and siblings. We strive to set a standard of perinatal bereavement care through a lifetime of support, hope and healing one family at a time. For support, please contact us at 801-272-5355.
Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. has been helping bereaved parents since 1977. Share is dedicated to supporting parents and families throughout the United States, as well as internationally.
Share Parents of Utah was established August 15, 1983 and supports the Wasatch Front area, including Salt Lake, Utah, Tooele, Summit, and Wasatch counties.
We understand. We care. We can help. Many parents find that it helps to talk with another parent who has experienced the loss of a baby – someone who can listen, understand, and be able to identify with some of their feelings. Talking with others who have suffered a pregnancy loss is very helpful. Anyone who has lost a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, or newborn death is welcome to call Share Parents of Utah and/or attend support group meetings. Just knowing that your experience is valid and that you are not alone can be very beneficial in working through your grief.
Tiffany Lindstrom – President
I am a mother to 4 living children and 2 angel babies. When my son Jayden passed away in 2013 followed by a miscarriage in 2014, I was unaware Share Parents of Utah was out there. I struggled to deal with my losses and tried to find local support help. Mother’s Day 2016 Share did an activity where they visited my son’s grave. I had no idea that this loss community existed. I immediately looked into the group and started serving at that time. It has been 6 years since that date and I have loved serving in the many different volunteer roles that I have had. I am excited to be on the board and serve as Vice President. This organization has done so much in helping me heal and be able to honor my son, I can’t wait to pay it forward.
Julie Card – Treasurer
Share was a lifesaver for me after my son, Isaac, died and now I’m grateful for this time and season to serve in his name. Having served on the board for the last two years, I see the dedication and love that our volunteers put into their service. It is hard work and it is also extremely rewarding. When time allows, I enjoy all of the hobbies reserved for men in their 70’s. I love rockhounding, metal detecting, roaming the desert in search of arrowheads and petroglyphs, fishing poorly, and camping. I love Share and I love all of the people I’ve met through this crappy club
Camille Jenkins – Secretary
Hi, a little bit about me, I have a degree in social work from Utah State (Go Aggies!). I’m a full-time stepmom to 3 kids (twins ages 15 and a 9-year-old) and my husband and I have been married for almost 3 years now. I’ve been working in the nonprofit sector for the past 20 years and love serving and helping others in my community. I love spending time with my family, watching cooking and home improvement shows, crafting, and drinking way too much Diet Coke. I’ve been serving on the Share Parent board for the past year as secretary and it has been such an honor to do so and I look forward to continuing that service during the next year.
Jamie Maines – Board Member
My husband and I welcomed our first son, James McLeod Maines on October 19, 2009. James was born sleeping, full-term weighing 6 lbs 6 oz. He was absolutely perfect. Our lives were changed. Not long after, we welcomed three more children, Haylee, McCoy, and Madyson. Although grief still existed, a lot of healing came from James’ siblings. After 5 years of processing the loss, I decided to join Share Parents of Utah. I have served for 7 years in different capacities. In the process of helping others, I have processed a lot of my grief and given purpose to the pain of loss. James has changed my life and the life of others through service.
Kasondra Riddle – Board Member
We lost our daughter Amirra in 2015. Although Share was not available to come to the hospital and serve our family at her passing, I found comfort in the support group meetings shortly thereafter. They were invaluable to me in a time of darkness and despair. While I never got the pictures, molds, or in-person support at the hospital, I have since found so much comfort in serving as a hospital companion and on the Share call line trying to do my part to ensure no family slips through the cracks. I have been serving as a facilitator and hospital companion for 5 years now and love the opportunity. I feel closer to my sweet angel baby every time I serve. I love crafting, woodworking, cooking, canning, and all things Summer. I have an obsession with unicorns, duckbill platypuses, and the Grinch.
Brit Jacobs – Board Member
I’m the wife of a hardworking Marine veteran and a full-time working mama of two living children, Reese (12) and Crew (5). I also hold the title of, “Angel Mama” for our sweet baby girl, Hunter (she would be 3).
I was introduced to Share Parents of Utah after the unexpected loss of our daughter, after going into preterm labor at 21 weeks 6 days, after what was deemed a very healthy and perfect pregnancy. Hunter lived for a very short 2 hours before gaining her angel wings –
After Share Parents of Utah supported us in the most difficult time of our lives, there was no question that I wanted to support other families in the same way –
As a current Hospital Companion and Share Call Line Volunteer, I have found sincere passion in helping those affected by pregnancy and infant loss. It has been a huge honor to be invited to support families in their most vulnerable and most devastating times and through the messy process of grieving their darling babies.
I look forward to the continued work as a Hospital Companion, Share Line Volunteer, and now as the newly appointed Board Member for Share Parents of Utah. It’s an honor and privilege to be part of such an incredible organization that touches the lives of so many! I am so proud to be part of this amazing group of people who walk through life, honoring our missed children every step of the way.
Jane Rollins – Social Media Chair
Hi I’m Jane and I’m often the face behind the social media posts. I’ve been volunteering with Share for a little over a year now but just got “promoted” to be the social media chair. I have two living children and one angel baby. Garrett was stillborn on May 29th, 2020 at 39.5 weeks gestation. He had trisomy 13, but we didn’t know until my 39 week prenatal appointment when there wasn’t a heartbeat anymore. My goal is to honor my son through service and love. Outside of Share, I spend my time as a stay-at-home mom where my main jobs are refereeing fights and reminding my children what tasks they should actually be doing. I love eating anything that contains peanut butter, playing home decorating games on my phone, and taking naps.
