For Family and Friends

When someone loses a baby, it’s so hard to find the ‘right words’ to say. We want to show we care, but we don’t want to say anything that might be taken the wrong way.

This website is designed to help. For example, one category here – “What Can I Say?” – offers suggestions for what say to grieving parents. Every time you visit this website, you will find more information and updates. We hope you visit often.

You might also want to contact us. As a caring range of different people – both survivors of pregnancy and infant loss, as well as professionals – we draw upon a wealth of diverse knowledge to answer all of your questions.

Thank you for visiting our website. Caring family members and friends, like yourself, make it easier
