In Memory Of You is designed to help parents grieve their stillborn or infant loss. Unlike a traditional baby book, this one respectfully omits pages where babies get to grow up—focusing on the last moments together, pregnancy, and finding a new “normal.”
The Team behind the book is made up of Autumn Cohen (Author), Bridget Wallace (Illustrator), Erin Spahr (Therapist), and Marti Statler (Publisher and her team). Autumn wrote the book to cope with the loss of her son and to help others who are grieving. Bridget is responsible for the book's beautiful illustrations, which offer comfort to readers. Erin, as a therapist, provided a therapeutic perspective and encouraged readers to be easy on themselves when journaling. Marti and her team provided support and encouragement throughout the publishing process, giving the author the confidence to see the project through to completion.
Although you can skip around, the book is organized into into 8 chapters to make it easier to journal as you see fit.
