Resources

If you look enough online, you'll find hundreds of websites offering help for babyloss families. 

Here are some I have found most useful.


Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. They offer the free gift of photography to families as they share their final moments together. Many hospitals contact them for you when you are in labor. If this is not a service your hospital provides, contact NILMDTS directly and they will make arrangements for you. Even if you don't think you'll want to have photos of your baby, do it anyways. You can never get that day back and, for me, the photos I have of Samuel are the only thing that get's me though some of the toughest days. I cherish them.


MollyBears. They makes adorable teddy bears that weigh the same as your baby. It's something to hold when your arms ache for your baby.  Believe me, you will want one of these. 


Every Life Counts.  An online outreach where parents of children who were diagnosed with a terminal condition can share their memories, their joy, their pain, and their love. It's a place where the lives of our much-loved children are celebrated, and where we can reach out to parents in similar situations.


Every Life Counts aims to be a valuable resource and source of hope for families and their children who, above all else, seek the gift of time.


Perinatal Hospice. Tons of great information about Carrying to Birth and perinatal hospice programs throughout the country. 


Purposeful Gift. Highlights information about organ and tissue donation for transplant, organ and tissue donation for research, and whole body donation for research. We also answer frequently asked questions, walk you through the donation process, provide accurate information in regards to multiple types of donation, share donation success stories, and provide helpful resources to guide you on your journey. 


Be Not Afraid. A website for families carrying to term after a fatal diagnosis. A great support, full of love and resources. Please see their list of resources on the page for more help.


Carrying An Angel. Another beautiful website for families carrying to term.


A Gift of Time.  Making the most of your time with baby as you carry to term.


Cherishing The Journey. Another great website for families carrying to term. Please see their list of resources on the page for more help.


Carly Marie Project Heal.  Carly makes beautiful artwork in memory of your baby(ies). Her website is packed with very helpful information and support.


Still Standing Online Magazine. Read articles of help and support from those who have traveled the road of babyloss before you. 


Sufficient Grace Ministries. A 501 (c ) 3 non-profit, non-denominational organization,  founded in 2004, with the purpose of reaching out to women and families to offer comfort, encouragement and hope. The Dreams of You division of this ministry was created specifically to provide comfort to women and families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. Sufficient Grace Ministries offers a comprehensive list of support options for bereaved parents, and parents currently carrying a baby with a life-limiting diagnosis.
