Peer-Recommended Resources

Helpful Information and Inspiration

From our hearts to yours

Grief is a very personal journey and there is no single right way to do it. Honoring your feelings and leaning into what feels supportive is a good place to start. It can also be comforting to find out what has been helpful for others who have experienced a pregnancy or infant loss.

Every resource in our library has been personally recommended by someone who has been impacted by baby loss. This community-based tool is designed to make it easy for loss families to access and share information and ideas. Peer suggestions are not recommendations from Griffin Cares Foundation. It is important to remember that everyone grieves differently and may find different resources to be helpful.
