Dorotha Graham Cicchinelli is a social worker and the executive director and founder of the Colorado Pregnancy and Newborn Loss Services, a nonprofit organization in Englewood, Colorado. The organization provides comprehensive loss support and education to parents who have suffered a pregnancy loss, miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant death, as well as education and training for healthcare practitioners who work with families who have experienced a loss. During the last 40 years this organization has served over 11,000 families. In her role as director, Dorotha developed the first Fetal & Newborn Loss Program in Colorado and in 2010 created a” Pregnancy After Loss” program with funding from The March of Dimes.
Dorotha possesses a B.A.S.W. from Loretto Heights College and earned her M.A. in Nonprofit Management from Regis University.

Ms. Cicchinelli has made numerous presentations on pregnancy loss including an invited address at an Office of Women’s Heath conference in Washington DC. She has published a variety of articles concerning fetal and newborn loss and authored a book titled “Managing Pregnancy Loss.” Dorotha is a co-founder of The International Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance (PLIDA) established in 2002. More recently, as an international committee member of a local Rotary International Chapter, she travelled to Costa Rico to learn about the status of health care for pregnant women and to identify ways the Rotary Chapter might provide assistance to local clinics in the San Juan area.
“I feel fortunate to have spent my career helping families grieve their pregnancy losses in a healthy way – a way that often has allowed women to experience the joy of subsequent successful pregnancies,” said Dorotha Cicchinelli in her interview with P.O.W.E.R magazine. “It is my hope that the resources and assistance of Colorado Pregnancy and Newborn Loss will continue to help families to move on to healthy pregnancies. In short, I hope that our organization can continue with its mission of Healing Parents to Promote Healthy Families. I want to thank P.O.W.E.R for allowing me to share my lifetime’s work.”
Dorotha and her husband, Dr. Louis Cicchinelli, have four children and eight grandchildren. Although they are both transplants to Colorado, they have lived in the state for more than 50 years. In her spare time, Dorotha likes singing and family activities.
