A letter to the baby can serve as a tribute to the memories shared and the sadness of their absence. We provide a supportive space to remember and honor their baby.
In chapter 3, we acknowledge and support bereaved parents as they grieve their loss. We provide a space for them to write about their experience and offer prompts for reflection, such as writing a letter to their baby or documenting their grief through a checklist. The checklist includes items such as crying in bed, seeking comfort through food, talking to a therapist, reading about grieving, and other coping mechanisms. Additionally, there is space for individuals to expand on their thoughts and feelings beyond the items on the checklist.
We understand that grieving can be difficult and emotional, and we encourage parents to do what works best for them. Whether it is writing about their loss or skipping this chapter altogether, we respect each parent's journey.
We also recognize that every bereaved parent's experience is unique and aim to provide a supportive and understanding space to remember and honor their baby. Whether writing about the last moments they spent together or adjusting to life without their sweet child, we offer this chapter for bereaved parents to cherish the memory of their precious little one.
