[ozmidwifery] Grieving families
by Ken Ward


For those unaware, SIDS and KIDS have a 'Treasured Baby' programme. We send
out packs for babies from about 16 weeks gestation. They have a nightie,
knitted set, sleeping bag, certificate in decorated tube for smaller bubs.
For 18 to term the packs have two nighties, two knitted sets, a bunny rug, a
blanket, the certificate, all made to size by volunteers from donated
materials. We also have memory boxes with tiny bonnets and bootees for
miscarriages, remembrance boxes for all the keepsakes and little burial
boxes, lined and decorated. We send packs to many of the units here in
Victoria and some in NSW. Any unit can obtain the packs. The vast majority
of volunteers have lost babies, and find this is a healing activity. Feed
back from families is extremely positive. So, as well as photos, there are
things that acknowledges the birth of the baby, no matter the gestation, and
can provide memories.  Maureen
