Child Loss

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In addition to the “types of pregnancy loss” resources, information and support we offer here at stillbirthday, which includes support regarding neonatal death, we have quite often provided “unofficial” support to families who’ve endured child loss at older ages, from toddlerhood, teen and well into adult years. While some of the aspects of child loss can be universally incorporated, such as:

we provide a growing section here reserved for loss from toddlers to teens to adults. Your child might have been older than a child, but he or she is still, your child. You are invited to share your story, and we also have a place at stillbirthday to hold a photo of your child. And, you can read the stories of other stillbirthday families who endured child death.

The following sections and the resources within them have been gathered specifically and individually by families who have used them.  If you have a section and/or resources you’d like to see on this list so that they can benefit other families, please, let us know about them.

 According to Matthew 2, King Herod sent soldiers into Bethlehem to kill every boy who was two years of age and under, out of his fear and jealousy of the baby Jesus. And the text reads:

“A cry is heard in Ramah—sudc
deep anguish and bitter weeping.
Rachel weeps for her children,
refusing to be comforted—
for her children are gone.”
