M.E.N.D. (Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death) is a Christian non-profit organization that reaches out to families that have lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant death. M.E.N.D. was founded by Rebekah Mitchell in 1996, one year following the stillbirth of her son, Jonathan. We are based in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex where we offer a variety of monthly support groups. We also have chapters across Texas and several additional states. For those who don’t live near one of our chapters, we offer an online support group the 3rd Thursday of each month at 9:00 PM CST. Additionally, M.E.N.D. publishes free bi-monthly newsletters that are distributed all over the world. Each issue focuses on a different topic pertaining to pregnancy and infant loss. And, each chapter of M.E.N.D. has its own Facebook group, which enables grieving families to connect with one another.
Every person involved with M.E.N.D. in a leadership level has personally experienced the death of a baby. We are not professional counselors, we are experts by experience.
