Who We Are

Staff and Volunteers

Nancy Berlow, Consultant and Clinical Supervisor

Nancy, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, has been a consultant for the Pregnancy Loss Support Program since 2011. In this capacity she trains and supervises the volunteer counselors who provide ongoing care for PLSP’s bereaved clients. In addition, Nancy teaches in-service hospital programs on perinatal loss for both medical professionals and bereaved parents and speaks at national conferences and in educational forums. Prior to working in the field of reproductive health and perinatal loss, Nancy specialized in geriatric social work, which gave her a unique perspective on guiding people of all ages and circumstances through the grief process. She maintains a private practice counseling patients who have suffered perinatal losses and other bereavement issues. Nancy received her BA degree from Brandeis University and earned her master’s degree from the Columbia University School of Social Work.

Renée Septimus, Volunteer Outreach Coordinator

Renée's connection to PLSP started with her own experience of miscarriage. Prior to joining the PLSP team, she worked as a social worker, most recently at the 92nd Street Y in New York. She is grateful to be able to "pay it forward"- helping others with pregnancy loss as she herself was helped. Renée is also a mother and grandmother.

Advisory Board

The PLSP Board of Advisors is a group of PLSP alumni and volunteers who work in partnership with the staff to create policies and procedures that reflect the needs of those who come to PLSP for support.
