For families experiencing late pregnancy loss, medical termination, stillbirth or neonatal death, having beautiful images to mark the life of your baby and document the love of the family can bring comfort for years to come. The Hamilton Midwives and the hospitals in our community can access professional bereavement photography from Heaven Bound or Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. These are volunteer organizations that offer intimate portrait sessions and professionally retouched images to help you remember your baby and the love you shared (it is a free service). These peaceful and loving photographs will honour your baby and be a tangible reminder for you on your grief journey. When professional photographers are not available to attend (they are all volunteers), one of our midwives is a trained NILMDTS medical affiliate. She can capture images and submit them for editing and retouching so you can have the best chance at professional level images to remember your baby. She can provide this service to other members of the community, not just clients of The Hamilton Midwives. If you are delivering at home with another midwifery practice or in hospital under the care of a physician and the hospital is unable to arrange a photographer, please page 905-317-1036 x8 and leave a voicemail for Susie.
