Nancy Hovatter is no stranger to grief. Two days after the birth of her beautiful son, Lukas, her precious son died of a congenital heart defect. His death set Nancy up for a lifetime of pursuing knowledge and resources to understand and cope with the grief that she experiences.

Nancy has spent the last 35 years serving other grieving parents. Due to very few resources or organizations that assisted parents of infant or still born death after Lukas died, Nancy often created and led support groups and provided education to grieving parents. Her affiliation with SHARE Infant and Pregnancy Loss and Pregnant Again fueled her passion to pursue her vocation in grief recovery.

Nancy’s heart to serve and strong desire to ease the grief and suffering of parents experiencing the same loss she did, led to her recently finishing her first book, Swimming Lessons from Lukas, due out in Spring 2017.

As an authority on bereavement of infant and pregnancy death, Nancy Hovatter is a favorite speaker throughout the grief recovery community. Nancy is a valued resource for her local television and newspaper outlets as a respected authority in the industry.

Nancy does not want any parent to suffer alone through such a devastating loss as infant or pregnancy death. Please connect on Social Media or check out the resources and tips on this website for navigating loss during such a difficult time.
