Living Grief

(go back to types of loss)

Whether your experience involves the NICU, surrogacy, fostering, adoption, divorce or birth trauma, if in any way your experience includes grieving your losses of a child who is still alive, we are honored to hold your story here at stillbirthday.  You are not alone.  I invite you, to share your story of what we call Living Grief – that is, grieving someone – or, aspects of your relationship with someone – who is still alive.  We also have a section of stories here  at stillbirthday called Stewarding Grief, a place to share about the difficult decision NOT to try to conceive.

Here is a list of helpful resources specific to the reality of NICU grief.

Our collection of resources and support for Child Death also speaks into numerous situations in which there is a combined parental role of both mourning and rearing children.


You can always simply share your story, and it will be added into the story places that it fits in best.
