Miscarriage Comfort Packages

A couple sweet mommies I know recently had miscarriages. I put together comfort packages to send in the mail to them, similar to the comfort boxes I take to the hospital.

What was in the packages (they varied slightly): A card, CD specifically for those who've lost a baby, a lavender candle to light in remembrance of their baby, Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to plant in memory of the baby they'll never forget, a packet of tissues for their tissues, a journal to write their feelings, letters to their baby, etc., chamomile tea and a lavender bath sponge to pamper the mother while she heals (both chamomile and lavender are known to be healing and soothing), a heart in remembrance of the baby they'll always carry in their heart, and a "Gone Too Soon" print, specifically painted for mothers who've miscarried by artist Stephanie Dyer of Beyond Words Designs.

Each precious life is irreplaceable and I wanted these mothers to know I grieve with them, while also celebrating their child's life. Anyone can put together a comfort package like this, even with things they already have on hand. It doesn't have to be extravagant, just thoughtful and loving.
