Bereavement Doula Services

If you or someone you know has recently experienced pregnancy or infant loss, including through elective termination, and are in need of support during the grieving process, a bereavement doula can offer a compassionate heart, listening ears, and personal time.

Bereavement doula services are also available to those who are currently pregnant and dealing with a terminal diagnosis for their baby.

Bereavement doula services are provided free of charge. If you would like to support this service with a financial contribution, you may do so via the Bereavement Doula Services option in the Shop/Service Payments page.

What can your bereavement doula do for you?

Processing the range of emotions that come from the loss of a pregnancy or infant is essential for learning to live with the grief without having the grief overtake your life. Being able to connect with a bereavement doula can give you a safe person to discuss what you’re feeling, to talk about your baby and the loss, and to lean on for support in managing whatever tasks you may need help with.

  • Emotional support before, during, and/or after your loss
  • Scheduled in-person support in your home, at appointments, or wherever you feel the need
  • Phone/text/email support anytime
  • Assistance running errands
  • Referral for additional resources as needed

Hello, Goodbye
Sleeping safe in a dream world
Protected by all that surrounds you–
A beating heart
A gentle laugh
The touch of loving hands
And your future wasn’t too far away.
We longed to see your smile
Hear your cry and dry the tears
We longed to teach you all that we knew
And hold your hands in ours
But time has slipped away
And in an instant, you left–
I’m not sure I’ll ever understand.
There are still lessons to teach
And games to play,
Sandcastles to build,
And kites to fly,
Things to explore,
And monsters to chase away in the night
But you’re already gone.
So we cry our tears
And pack up the few reminders we have
Of the brief life that ended
Before you ever took your first steps
Or even your first breath–
Hoping only that you’ll be happy
Wherever you are.


A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam…
and for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world…
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.
