For many Moms, infant bereavement photos provide solace.


Lately, we've been hearing a lot about a foundation called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, a nonprofit organization that has provided thousands of families of babies who are stillborn or are at risk of dying as newborns with free professional portraits with their baby. Featured this week on the Today show, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep was co-founded by Cheryl Haggard, a mother who lost her son Maddux at six days old, and Sandy Puc', the photographer who took pictures of Maddux before he was removed from life support.

The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation now has nearly 3,200 affiliated photographers in 12 countries worldwide. According to their Web site, "the soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives."

If you knew you were going to deliver a stillborn baby, or that your infant was at risk of dying, would you want photos taken of your child? Comment below.

While I was waiting in the Doctor’s office today, I ready an article about the amazing organization. I was amazed. I didn’t know they were out there. I think this is wonderful. I wish every hospital did this; I hope someday this will be offered by all hospital. Keep up the wonderful work you’re doing.

I wish I had had access to this organization back in 1996, when I had a stillborn daughter. The hospital wouldn’t let me see her and I didn’t even know she was a girl until I broke down and begged a nurse to tell me. When I asked to see and hold her, I was told that I was morbid and my request was denied and then I was sedated. The only thing I do remember was that she had red hair. A picture would have meant so much.
