There is no blueprint for loss; no “right way” to feel or act. You might want photographs, hand- or footprints. You may want to diaper and dress your baby or wash their hair. A funeral home may be helping with burial or cremation, or you might not have any tangible connection with your child.
Your will grieve in your own way, and it will change with time. At first, you might need to allow your body and heart the space to begin healing. But at some point—be it a month or even a year later—you may yearn for a way to recognize your baby, to be seen in your loss and to mourn with others.
“Hannah led a beautiful ceremony with care and intention, and her presence was so palpably peaceful.”
Together we can honor your sorrow and celebrate the baby whose life and death has changed you. I offer my services to mothers and families by donation, whether it be performing a private ritual, officiating a public funeral or celebration of life, helping plan a backyard tree planting or simply talking with you about ways to memorialize your child.
