A parent support network gives parents the opportunity to discuss issues of worry or concern with other parents of children with hemophilia. If you wish to talk with other parents who are raising a child with hemophilia, ask any member of the Hemophilia Treatment Center team for referrals. We also can refer you to parent support groups throughout the Bay Area.
