~Infant Bereavement Photography~

Yes it may sound morbid BUT it is not.

I am a Birth Doula and a member of DAMA finishing up my DONA certification. Birth and Death are natural things. We hate it when someone young dies and we know that the old do die.

Yesterday I got this email from a fellow DAMA member. She met this lovely woman the other day. They started talking about jobs and such and she does Infant Bereavement Photos. She included the link to the site as well. At first I thought how horrible! To lose someone so small. Something you were looking forward too. Soo many things went through my mind.

Then I went to the site.

It was soooo beautiful. I cried and cried looking at those tiny baby photos and reading what the parents had written about their baby. Photos of parents holding their babies. Siblings holding the baby. It was amazing. It gives parents a piece of their life. They can treasure their baby forever.

Here's the link if you'd like to see. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

The organization doesn't charge to do the photos but they do take donations. I am adding them to my donation list. I think it is a great idea and I know the people that take the time to take the photos are a gift from God. Thank you!

So when i first saw the title to the blog... I was thing... "morbid"... but then I went to the sight... I looked at the pictures... I read the stories... I cried... the Quints that they lost 3 of... *sniffle*
I think today I'm going to thank God again for blessing me with 5 beautiful, healthy, spoiled rotten brats. I don't know how I would survive without them.

I can tell you from personal experience that the service these photographers provide... there are no words that can truly express how important it is. I lost my sweet Abbigail at 34 weeks. One of the nurses at the hospital told me about NILMDTS and made the call. The photographer that took my pictures traveled 70 miles late at night. If not for the pictures he took, I would only have my memories. Now I can look at my beautiful daughter anytime. Her memory will stay alive.
