Healing After Loss: Creating a memory box

What to add to your memory box?

Creating a memory box of your baby can bring so much comfort. It is a safe space that may bring you a sense of healing and comfort.

Helpful suggestions to add to your memory box

  • Pictures. Including ultrasounds, the day your baby was born and any milestone pictures you may celebrate in honor of your baby. Add any pictures that resonates with you.
  • Letters. Write a letter to your baby and share all of the things you wished to tell them. Write a letter to them on their Birthday or any milestone.
  • Blanket. Did you have a special blanket that swaddled your baby or hoped to swaddle your baby?
  • Hat. Did they have a specific hat they wore?
  • Stuffed animals. Do you have a special stuffed animal that reminds you of them?
  • Dried florals. Do you have dried flowers from their birth or Funeral service you want to keep safe?
  • Hand + Footprints. Include their beyond perfect hand and footprints.
  • Hospital wristbands.
  • Pregnancy tests.

 Add any item that reminds you of your baby in your memory box.
