Giving voice to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death), SUID (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death) and SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood) families who have suffered an unexpected and unexplained loss and creating a healing, supportive community whose overriding goal is for no other families to suffer - EVERMORE is here to support all families who have lost a child, whether young or old, from accidents, violence, suicide, war, illness, natural causes, or disasters. We are working to build a more holistic societal support system, implement policies that help parents and families during a time of deep pain, and advance the science of parent and family bereavement. A parent-to-parent network so that people who’d lost kids to drug overdoses, for instance, could connect with one another. EVERMORE is dedicated to supporting parents and families who have lost a child, at any age and from any cause, by building an evidenced-based support system touching the lives of all those who have been affected. - List of support groups and counselors who specialize in helping families who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or a baby at any time. - This is a place for bereaved families who have experienced the loss of their baby(s) in-utero, whether through miscarriage or still birth. These precious lives never had to experience suffering or sorrow, only love. It is such an inspiring gift to our babies to have held them their whole lives. So many of us understand the immense pain and anguish of giving birth in silence and having our babies torn from our lives, leaving us with broken hearts, emptiness, and shattered dreams. We exist to give recognition to the babies born in silence when the world wants to say they were not babies since they did not breathe air. We hope that by gifting a keepsake necklace with your beautiful baby's name on it, you will know that your child counted. We hope that you will find comfort and healing through those of us who have survived, and share your baby’s beautiful story so that we may remember them. - For families experiencing the death of a baby or child at any age and from any cause - A clearinghouse of information about perinatal hospice and palliative care. If you are here because of a prenatal diagnosis that indicates your baby likely will die before or after birth, we are so sorry. Perhaps you are considering continuing your pregnancy and embracing whatever time you may be able to have with your baby, even if that time is only before birth, while your baby is cradled safely inside of you. Please know that support is available (see the links on this site for perinatal hospice/palliative care programs and other resources) and that you are not alone. Parents who have traveled this path before you have found that it can be a beautiful, profoundly meaningful, and healing journey. - Organization supporting bereaved parents through their grief after the loss of a son or daughter of any age. They offer the following services, (monthly drop-in centres, 24 hour listening ear helpline, befriending service and subsidised counselling). - Non-profit organization that seeks to compassionately assist bereaved parents with the financial expenses they face in making final arrangements for their precious baby who has died. Many of the founders and volunteers at The TEARS Foundationhave experienced the loss of their own baby, and want to reach out in this way to support newly bereaved parents in their time of devastating sorrow. - Walk in Sunshine - "An organization whose premise is to be there for parents both financially and spiritually, who have lost young children. Losing a child can be one of the hardest moments a family can go through. We can help answer some of the smaller questions for you. Do we bury or do we cremate? What do you mean you don’t have child or baby sized caskets or urns? Wait we want an autopsy, who transports a body to the Children’s Specialized Hospital? How much does everything cost?"
