Caring for the Remains of Your Miscarriage

Private Burial Arrangements

Private arrangements may be made for any pregnancy loss. Costs will vary for this service if you choose to enlist the services of a funeral home.


You may have your pregnancy/baby’s remains cremated individually and you may bury, scatter or keep the ashes. Most funeral homes will provide this service at no charge.

Symbolic Personal Rituals

For some, rituals are most meaningful when they are private and personal. You may wish to honour your baby by planting a tree, selecting a special Christmas ornament or writing a poem. We encourage you to do whatever you wish, no matter how simple or unusual.
