Shining the light on Pregnancy & Infant Loss in Jamaica
What do you call a parent whose child has died?
A wife who loses a husband is called a widow.
A husband who loses a wife is called a widower.
A child who loses his parents is called an orphan.
There is no word for a parent who loses a child.
That’s how awful the loss is.
– Jay Neugeboren – An Orphan’s Tale – 1976
Our goal is to break the silence and stigma surrounding pregnancy and infant loss in Jamaica. We are on a mission to provide resources and support to parents who have experienced a pregnancy or infant loss and to educate those external to the baby loss community, how to provide support and care to their loved ones.
