Rainbow funeral for a baby, child or stillborn.

A sensitive funeral service for the loss of a baby:

A funeral (ceremony) service for a very young, stillborn or miscarried baby is a particularly sad and poignant time for parents and family. They often wish to acknowledge the baby or child’s brief life and may find comfort from actually celebrating the fact they were blessed as parents, even for a short time.

If you have lost a baby during pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth or shortly after birth you may feel the need to recognise and acknowledge your child in a way which is appropriate for you and your family. Circle Of Life Ceremonies will write and conduct an empathetic and personal service for your baby or child.

Marie will take the time to meet with you to explore ideas for the funeral service (ceremony). This can include Rainbow ribbons, bubbles, release of a signature balloon with your child’s name on it. Each of these special touches can represent the journey of a little soul, or maybe you would like to think of them as angels? Each ceremony can be religious; semi religious; non religious, respecting your beliefs or culture.

You can include:

• Contributions and words from your other children if appropriate and friends and other family members.
• Themed poems, stories or readings. Marie can weave a tapestry of words.
• The music of your choice. i.e Somewhere over th
e
Rainbow.

Some special ideas for a baby’s funeral service:

• You may like to have a few words said about the name you have chosen for your baby.
• You can include lighting of signature candles, release signature balloons or blowing bubbles of love.
• Children attending the ceremony can be invited to draw or write something for or about your baby or child (these can be kept in a memory box)
Blue Ballon
• Guest book for those who attend to sign and acknowledge.
Rainbow ribbons.
• Favourite Teddy bear or toy laid on the casket. (Baby or child)

Please note:  Marie has chosen not to charge for her services where a baby, child, miscarriage or stillbirth is involved.

If she is available to conduct the service she will gladly do so. Maybe you would like to make a small donation to the children’s Candlelighters charity or a charity of your preferred choice?

Funeral Directors, please feel free to contact Marie to discuss this service.
