Welcome 

 

First let us say if you are visiting our site because you have lost your precious baby, we offer you our deepest sympathy.

We know your pain, we have been there too. 

Our hope is that you may find some comfort here, even if only in knowing you are not alone.

Our sincerest wish is to share with women, their partners, family and friends ways to navigate this process of grieving and to ultimately promote healing. We wish to provide some touchstones that support you through your grief and offer ways to honour and celebrate your little one.

We are passionate about helping to break the silence surrounding baby loss, and uniting people travelling this often very lonely path. Many families grieve in silence, sometimes never comming to terms with their loss. We want this to change.

 

A Birth Healing Blessing


Blessed sister, beautiful one
with broken wings.
Your journey is a difficult one
that no mother should have to endure.
Your path is steep, rocky and slippery
and your tender heart is in need of gentle healing.

Breathe deeply and know that you are loved.
You are not alone,
though at times, you will feel like a
desolate island of grief
untouchable
distant.
Close your eyes.
Seek the wisdom of women who have walked this well-worn path before you,
before,
and before,
and before you yourself were born.
These beautiful ones
with eyes like yours
have shared your pain, and
weathered the storms of loss.

You are not alone (breathe in)
You will go on (breathe out)
Your wings will mend (breathe in)
You are loved (breathe out)
