Honouring Your Baby and Marking Your Loss

"A person's a person no matter how small" Dr Seuss. 

After losing your baby you may find it helpful at the appropriate time for you, to do or create something that marks the loss of your baby and honours their brief life. This can help not only by validating your baby's life, but also bring comfort and healing.

A Certificate

If you miscarry berfore 24 weeks of your pregnancy, there is no legal recognition of your baby's brief life. There are websites that will create a beautiful recognition of life certificate for your baby. Some of the ones I find particularly beautiful are;

A Ceremony
 
If you don't have a funeral or ceremony after your miscarriage, you may want to hold a memorial ceremony; this could be in your own place of worship, in your home, or in a place special to you. It could be just for close friends and family, or even just you and your partner.
 
Some hospitals organise annual services of remembrance for babies who have died there.
 
♥ The Bluebell Foundation holds a service at Furness General Hospital in December each year to remember babies who have died.
 
♥ Saying Goodbye services are held in cathedrals across th UK throughout the year.                       Visit   www.sayinggoodbye.org   for more details of dates and venues.
 
♥ Tigerlily Trust  holds a Remembrance Celebration to remember all our babies each year on October 15th - International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and joins with the global wave of light around the world. 
 
♥ The Royal Lancaster Infirmary holds a remembrance service in November every year at                St Thomas's Church in Lancaster.
