Hi! I wanted to throw this question out to you wonderful folks, in particular L&D/Postpartum/NICU folks......But I'll take input from whomever...
Most of you know that I lost my 12 day old son due to complications from birth defects in July 2002.
I have been trying to think of things to do in his memory. I do plan to buy preemie outfits and blankets and donate these to the NICU where he was born. I am also planning on making donations to several charities in his name.
On a grief support site I frequently go to, a lady there had asked us what we thought about her idea of donating teddy bears to local hospitals (in our respective areas)-these bears to be given to mothers whose baby had died-whether through miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death. I can speak from experience that it is heartbreaking to leave a hospital without your baby in your arms...With these bears, these mothers would have something to hold.
Just wanted to get some input from professionals...Thanks for "listening"..
