Healing Hearts Baby Loss Comfort was created in response to the reality that some pregnancies do not end happily. At Earth Mama® we get to see the joyful side of pregnancy, but we also deal with all of the real issues, from the physical discomfort of morning sickness, anxiety, and hemorrhoids to the heartbreaking pain of baby loss. We wanted Healing Hearts Baby Loss Comfort to be a place for women to feel comfortable looking for real, physical comfort, herbal remedies and spiritual nurturing, as well as a space to find resources, honor their grief and express their loss.
We also wanted to create a place for those looking to support someone who has lost a baby. It can be so difficult to know what to do or say when a baby dies. So many people are touched by miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death (death in the first 28 days of life), but we don’t have solid, reliable ways of dealing with grief. Healing Hearts Baby Loss Comfort has suggestions about what to do and say, and ideas to comfort and support grief and healing.
Visit the Remembering Baby page to leave a personal message, poem or tribute to your baby. The Grief Resources page includes links to supportive sites and articles. “What Do I Say?” is a good place to start if you are a concerned person who is feeling at a loss. For physical and spiritual relief, the Healing Hearts Comfort Gifts page includes a tea to ease engorged breasts, a spirit-soothing spray, a meditation candle, and seeds to sow and nurture.
If you are here, we know you must be experiencing sadness. We offer you our sincerest hopes for your healing. Grief is a terrible, and terribly natural thing. Do what you need to do to get through it, and know that things will change. What is unbearable now will change. What is effortful now will change. Change is dependably constant. Have faith in change.
