Miscarriage and Stillbirth

I’ve added a few links to helpful websites for anyone who has lost a child.  After losing my beloved Katie I scoured the internet for something to ease the pain and cam across some wonderful sites and businesses.  My heart goes out to anybody who needs to use these links.

My Tangible Peace: Creates one of a kind life sized gestational sculptures and miniature newborn sculptures.

Perfect Memorials: Sell beautiful memorial and cremation jewelry

Stillbirth Foundation Australia: I fund raise for this organisation for the month leading up to Katie’s birthday.  They are a fantastic organisation with great resources to anyone who has lost a child.  They also sell a great book on Pregnancy Loss with all profits going directly into the work they do.

Pregnancy Loss Australia: (Formerly The Teddy Love Club) A support program for families who suffer the loss of a baby or babies through miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for feotal abnormality and neo natal loss. They provide a range of services including counselling, support meetings, bear giving program and more. You can join them on face book here.

Blaire Bears: Founded by a mother who sadly lost her daughter four weeks before her first birthday and wanted to provide bereaved parents with a less confronting, and nicer alternative to traditional urns for their children..  Her charity provide handmade, personalized teddy bear that will fit an urn inside.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep: I only wish I knew about this foundation when Katie died.  They have a carefully selected team of photographers trained to take beautiful photographs of your child, they believe the images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring their child’s legacy. Their facebook page can be found here.

Heartfelt: “Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia who have come together to form an organisation dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature and ill infants and children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of their local hospitals, as well as children with serious and terminal illnesses. ”  Their work is amazing and they are extremely professional.

If you have another helpful link or resource please comment or email me and I can add it to the list.

    What about heartfelt? They take photos of stillborn and critically ill children. I’m not sure of the link but I know they are on Facebook.

    Katie leaves an amazing legacy, the way that you and D are so open, honest and candid about losing your beautiful little girl means the taboo is removed. A generation ago even it wasn’t talked about. Even if it means that only one other family feel connected to yours (and her) story and feel less alone in the vast emptiness after losing a much wanted and loved child then she, through you, has made a difference in the world

    Thinking of you
