Send some comfort


Weighted Bears

It isn’t uncommon for a parent’s arms to physically ache with emptiness after a pregnancy or infant loss. Through HEALing Embrace, special stuffed bears can be purchased to memorialize a baby who has died and bring comfort to a grieving parent or family. Created with love and assembled by caring volunteers at the weight of the baby lost, these keepsake bears provide a surrogate that help family members start their journey toward healing.
