No Cost Comfort Box

The mental health impacts of pregnancy and infant loss are profound. Researchers have found that 29% of birthing people who experienced a pregnancy loss, had anxiety, depression and PTSD-like symptoms for an extended period of time after the loss.

The above statistics demonstrate not only the high number of losses that occur but also the long-term impacts that pregnancy and infant loss have. The topic is highly stigmatized and a deeply isolating experience. Receiving tangible items of support and comfort can make a huge difference to families navigating grief. 

With the generous support of Knights of Columbus (Council 6488), we have 70 beautiful and intentionally created comfort boxes to gift AT NO COST to someone navigating the journey through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal loss, SIDS or infertility. 

NOTE: The boxes are open to anyone in Alberta who has experienced a loss within the last 6 months.

What's in Every Box?

100 % of the businesses that contributed to the boxes are owned by female-identifying entrepreneurs and 95% of the items are curated by Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) owned businesses. It is our mission to amplify and support BIPOC business owners however we can.

Each comfort box contains…

  • ONE of these card sets… 
    • Miscarriage Affirmation Cards by Natalie KalverKamp
    • Letters of Love: Four Self-Care Greeting Cards to Write to Your Angel Baby by Emi + Company
  • Memorial Candle by Land of Daughters
  • Dream pillow by The Silver Moccasin (NEW)
  • Tea by Sarjesa Tea
  • Loss and Grief Intention Bottle by Mama J (UPDATED)
  • Luxury Bath or Shower Bombs by Mama J (NEW)
  • Journal by Loft Designs
  • Mala Bracelet by Rekha Chugh
  • Pocket Hug by Love Jude (NEW)

Calgary volunteers create ‘bereavement boxes’ for parents dealing with pregnancy and infant loss

Pregnancy and infant loss are traumatic experiences made worse when people don’t get the support they need. And a local charity is now helping to recognize the unique challenges faced by members of the BIPOC community who are suffering the same losses.

When Aditi Loveridge was expecting for the first time 10 years ago, she never thought pregnancy loss would happen to her. She said…
