Relaxing Doesn't Make Babies

Stillbirth Resources

If you have found your way to my site because you have had a stillbirth, please let me say that I am so very, very sorry. And also let me say: you are not alone.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you just want to talk. I am happy to talk with you about your baby and your experience, to answer any questions you might have about my experience and to offer my support to you.

Here are some other resources for you:

M.I.S.S. Foundation is an organization for supporting grieving families after losing a child. They have forums that you must be registered to read and post to. I found it helpful when I was in deep grieving. It is a safe place to talk about what you are feeling and to get support from others who have been there.

Glow in the Woods is sort of like a nexus for babyloss mamas here on the blogosphere. There are posts from many different loss parents, and they are compiling a blogroll, a list of everyone with loss blogs.

The National Stillbirth Society has a TON of information on stillbirths facts, prevention, research, and much more. If you’re looking for information, this is what you want.

The International Stillbirth Alliance is “a coalition created to enhance and increase the effectiveness of individuals and groups already working to promote stillbirth research, education and awareness.”

Baby Angel Pics does free photo touch-ups for stillborn babies. I also highly recommend asking friends if they know anyone who does photo enhancements. The person who did Devin’s photo I found through a friend and she did a fantastic job.

Julian and Co is a jewelry company where my friends purchased my gorgeous necklace. It has Devin’s name and birth stats engraved on it and I treasure it.

My Forever Child sells jewelry specifically geared to losses, lots of beautiful options.
