Where We Start

“Grief does not stop once you leave the hospital nor does it stop after a funeral or memorial service. It is a lifelong process that gets softer over time but never ends.”
Stephanie Grimm

The care and support for grieving families by The Haven Network does not stop once we have left the hospital. It does not stop simply because we have provided families with their keepsakes and photographs of their beloved little one.

That is simply the beginning.

The Haven Network is there for grieving families for as long as needed. We start in the hospital by connecting with the family, caring for their baby, creating keepsakes and photographing the baby individually and with his or her family. We continue support for the family with in person and online support groups, grief counseling, several special remembrance events throughout the year, unlimited access to our Share library all at no cost to our families. We remember each families baby on the baby’s due date and on the anniversary of their loss and every day in between.

The untimely death of a baby is a tragedy and moms, dads, grandparents….the whole family needs a safe and soft place to fall, to find support, to find and be a part of a community that understands. The Haven Network is that place.

If you or someone dear to you has lost a baby, we encourage you to reach out to The Haven. Find the support you want, be a part of a community of other moms and dads enduring the death of their baby, find your safe place to grieve.

Funeral/Memorial Service Planning: Music

  Whether we are aware of it or not, the music we listen to inspires us, relaxes us, challenges us, encourages us and speaks the words we struggle to say. Some days it helps us shed the tears we have bottled up. Other days it helps us smile and maybe even laugh. This is never more true than when parents are enduring a terminal diagnosis of their unborn baby or coping with the loss of their baby. The songs listed…
