Honoring the Babyloss Mother in Your Life


Mother's Day is one of the hardest holidays to face after your baby has died. It's heartbreaking and terrible because not only is your beautiful child missing -- a fact that makes every day hard to face -- but also because so many people forget that you are still a mother. Mother's Day has become almost unrecognizable from it's original goal of being a day to celebrate all mothers, including loss moms. Instead of looking forward to a day of gifts and flowers, breakfast in bed, or brunches, loss moms hide in their homes with only broken hearts, empty homes, and pictures in their head of how life should be. And this is not okay. A loss mother is just as much a mother as the one whose children are with her. She deserves just as much respect and admiration as any other mother. In many ways, she deserves it more, as she had to do the unthinkable and give her child back. She is brave and beautiful beyond imagination. She is a mother.

Sunday, May 4th is International Bereaved Mother's Day. A day for loss mothers all over the world to come together and say I am still a beautiful mother, even though my child has died. You can learn more and join in at Carly Marie, Project Heal.

All That Love Can Do would like to honor the special babyloss mothers in your life. Maybe it's your daughter, maybe it's your wife, maybe it's your friend, or niece, or cousin, or co-worker. Maybe it's a special person you've never even met, but have followed through a blog, or page, or through other social media. However you're connected to this mother, this is your chance to tell her how amazing she is. How beautiful and wonderful and strong she is. How special she is to you. How she is still a mother.

Beginning on Sunday, May 4th (International Bereaved Mother's Day), and going until Sunday, May 11th (Mother's Day), All That Love Can Do will be sharing notes to these moms. Written by you, for her, as a way to show the world that she is still a beautiful mother.

Would you like to honor the special babyloss mom in your life?
Here's how you can participate:

Any time between now and Saturday, May 3rd, write a note to the beautiful loss mom you'd like to honor and send it to us in a private message to our Facebook Page. It can be a few words, or a full page note, whatever you'd like. This is your chance to tell the loss mom in your life how amazing she is. Tell us why she's super special to you and why you want to honor her. Please be sure to include her full name and her baby's name(s), so she'll know it's for her when we post them.

Together, we can help the special loss mom in your life know she is loved, she is remembered, and she is a beautiful mother.

If you have any questions, or when you're ready to submit your note, please contact RaeAnne by sending a private message to All That Love Can Do, here.


Let's make this Mother's Day a beautiful day for all mothers.
