A Mother's Memory
Order directly from Memories Unlimited
The death of a mother during or shortly following childbirth is a devastating occurrence. Resolve Through Sharing has developed A Mother’s Memory to help staff and family members preserve meaningful keepsakes of the mother.
The padded, huggable ivory brocade memory box contains a brochure, baby ring, hand-print poem for both mother and baby, small fabric bag for a clip of mom’s hair, and space for other items. The box itself has a ribbon closure, developed intentionally, as psychologists note that tying the ribbon provides a way to place one’s grief in a sacred space temporarily. Untying the ribbon opens oneself to the bittersweet memories of love and grief. The two oval frames inside the lid provide a place for photos of the mother and baby or other loved one.
A Mother’s Memory can also be presented to the family when a mother dies from causes other than childbirth.
