As a funeral home staff, we know that losing a loved one is difficult no matter what the circumstances. But, losing an infant is something that no one can understand unless they have experienced it firsthand. As a truly devastating experience, it can lead the parents into a place of deep mourning. Time can be a healer, but in this case, there is a need for so much more. It is important to find emotional support from family, friends, and other who can empathize due their own similar experiences.
Grieving for your lost baby is very important to the healing process. Even if you didn’t get a chance to know your baby, the grief is real and relevant. And you should allow yourself to feel whatever emotion you may be feeling. If you don’t take time to grieve, it will make the sad ordeal even harder to get over. Find out about support services in your area and seek out others who have been in the same situation as you. You can get comfort and understanding from being in contact with others who have suffered the same type of loss.
At Mountain View Funeral Home, we will help you arrange for a sensitive funeral service. It will not only help you with your grieving process, but it will give you a chance to let friends and family be a part of your grief. We will help you with options for memorializing your infant, but at the end of the day, the choice is yours. Whether you choose a private ceremony or a memorial service with loved ones, you must do what feels right to you. There is no right or wrong way to get through this tough period, but we are here to support and help you in every way possible.
