This chapter celebrates the baby's arrival and acknowledges loss, focusing on sharing the birth story, displaying the baby's name, and including a "Certificate of Recognition." Space is provided for others to share their impact and reflection on loss.
This chapter celebrates the baby's arrival and pays tribute to their memory. We provide pages for bereaved parents to their birth story, including the day their due date passed, and proudly display their baby's name.
Parents can share the story of the baby's name and why they chose it. We also include a "Certificate of Recognition" for parents who did not get a birth certificate to acknowledge that their baby was here and never forgotten.
We encourage parents to describe their birth story and provide a picture, if possible. We also provide space for others to share their version of the baby's story, acknowledging the baby's impact on their lives. Use the journaling pages to reflect on the hospital experience, first days at home, and memorable moments.
Finally, we recognize that for stillbirth parents, the baby's arrival also marks their loss. We provide a page for parents to reflect on this difficult time. Whether these pages are used as a personal journal or as a space for others to share their story, the focus is on remembering and cherishing the baby's life.
