For Those Who Have Miscarried...

My daughter miscarried this year. I would like to get her something that symbolizes the baby and that we will always remember that baby. I was thinking perhaps a piece of jewelry. For those of you who have miscarried, is this a bad idea? I donít want to upset her. I just want her to know that I loved that baby as well.

My neighbor lost a baby and they put up a weeping cherry tree in his honor.

I have miscarried 5 times. I put 5 angel ornaments on my tree every year. This was the hardest time of year for me for a while after those miscarriages. It helped me to include my angels in some way during the holidays.

You won't upset her with any kind of remembrance.

I agree with tree ornaments. Jewelry would also be lovely.

Or you could make a donation in memory of the baby to an organization.

I love angels. I have angels in my house and a beautiful double angel charm to honor my twins that we lost.
She will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Our children are always a part of us.

I think it's really kind of you to think of her. I have had miscarriages and getting that as a gift would be sad for me and I wouldn't wear the jewelry. I would not be upset with the giver as I would know it was given with good intentions. Could you ask her about it?

My dad got me a porcelain baby rattle ornament in memory of one of my pregnancy losses. It was appreciated very much.

My husband and I also have a pair of porcelain baby shoe ornaments with blue ribbon that we've hung on the tree in memory of our son.

For me, I think a bracelet that you can add a charm to for special occasions would be appropriate. That way it would not just be a grief piece, but also one that remembered other occasions, too.

Grief is different for many people. Some want to memorialize it, while others want to ignore/forget it.

The ornaments sound like a lovely idea. I have nothing to symbolize my 3 miscarriages. Kinda wish I did. But, everyone in my family sees me as only a mom of one. Because I was so young with my first miscarriage, no one wants to remember it except me- my parents think it was a "stroke of luck" because it would've ruined college.


I've actually thought of a tattoo.

There are several Pandora charms that would be appropriate. A Willow Tree angel also makes a sweet gift.

I miscarried about 20 years ago. I have a mother's ring with the baby's birthstone. You can get them at Walmart fairly cheap.

I think it's a beautiful idea. Many people don't know how to "react" when someone has a miscarriage and many people who have had miscarriages (myself included) feels that those miscarriages are forgotten or acted like those babies never existed, which of course they did. Having something to remember that angel is wonderful.
