I recently completed my Bereavement Doula Certification and I am working on finding ways to support Bereaved Families. It is a free service I offer when I can.
In preparation for this service I am creating blessings, anointing oil, and building my Still Birth/miscarriage support kit. As a society how we deal with death has become very medicalized. And for many families going through or having gone through a miscarriage (myself included) there are no ceremonies or connection to that loss. It is often times brushed off as a biological fluke and nothing more. Leaving many hurting families struggling to find ways to bring closure and process their grief.
I created a wishlist on Amazon with items that can help me prepare the bodies of deceased infants, help miscarrying families identify their baby’s remains, and help give comfort to families who’s baby is expected to die shortly after birth. These circumstances happen at home, hospitals, birthing centers, and more. I hope my kit and my services will bring humanity, dignity, consideration, and even some happiness through truly difficult times. Check out the Amazon wish list here and donate what you can. If you are uncertain what to purchase I can help guide you to my top needs. Also if you are curious what a particular item on the list will be used for please Contact me and I can explain it’s purpose.
