When a baby or child passes away, it can leave you with significant and long lasting grief. Grieving parents hold onto their child’s memory in a myriad of ways.
No matter who you are, or how old, or from what walk of life, losing a child is one of the most difficult challenges you will ever deal with.
It doesn’t matter how your baby or child passes away, you are left with the dreams of what that child would have become and what the future would have been.
Sadly, babies and children pass at any stage, from early gestation, during birth, after birth and into childhood. Whenever this occurs the passing is extremely and deeply distressing for not only the parents, but also grandparents, family members, friends and even the community.
While there are many explanations why babies and children pass away, your individual circumstances are unique. This grief seems to take on a life of its own.
