Bereavement Services

I’m truly sorry for whatever circumstances bring you to this section of my services, but I’m glad you’re here.

As of April 2016, I am certified as a Birth and Bereavement Doula through StillBirthDay. As a StillBirthday Birth and Bereavement Doula, I am prepared to assist with birth in all outcomes including miscarriage (at any gestation), fetal demise, stillborn, fatal/challenging diagnosis, and also subsequent/rainbow/live births. If you have recently experienced a loss or received a challenging diagnosis, I am ready to support you right now, where you are, whether preparing for your baby’s birth or recovering from your baby’s loss. I am also available to support you by attending your 6 week postpartum visit with you, so that you don’t have to face that alone.

I do not charge for bereavement services, but will gratefully accept a goodwill offering either to me or to a charity of your choice.

Memorials

Bastians Bears

Bastian’s Bears is their way of offering a tangible means of comfort in support for those who have been impacted by child loss. Each bear is either weighted to the child’s birth weight or offered with a “time capsule” pouch for storing precious keepsake items.

Perfect Memorials

Choose from a variety of products such as cremation urns, pet urns, cremation jewelry, caskets and other sympathy gifts. Many of our products are uniquely crafted by skilled artisans, representing the uniqueness of our loved ones.

Etsy

I have not linked this with a specific shop, but there are many memorial items such as jewelry, pendants, charms, figurines, etc. There are a few items on my personal shop as well, but there are so many options for handmade memorial items from sellers around the world. Search around until you find something that is meaningful to you. If you’d like some suggestions, I’d be happy to share my favorite shops with you.
