Remembering your baby in a symbolic way after pregnancy loss can be incredibly healing and is a way of keeping the memory of your baby alive.
The experience of early pregnancy loss can leave you feeling grief-stricken, isolated and empty. Sadly, these feelings are often made worse because the grief we are feeling is disenfranchised – that is, it isn’t acknowledged by society – particularly in the case of earlier losses.
When you miscarry a pregnancy, there is no funeral and no way of saying goodbye.
Remembering your baby in a significant way can be helpful and healing. Allowing yourself to commemorate your loss and the loss of the future hopes and dreams associated with it is a way to hold space for your grief and gain some closure at a time where there seems to be none.
