As a medical professional, you have been a witness to the miraculous journey of pregnancy and birth. Unfortunately, there is another place in this journey that we don’t often think of—an unexpected, sorrow-filled place—when a baby dies. A family’s world is turned upside down with confusion, sorrow, fear and uncertainty.
NILMDTS offers the gift of healing, hope, and honor to parents experiencing the death of a baby through the overwhelming power of remembrance portraits. Professional-level photographers volunteer their time to capture the only moments parents spend with their babies and gift the beautiful heirloom portraits free of charge. These priceless images serve as an important step in the healing recovery for bereaved families. NILMDTS remembrance photography validates the existence and presence of these precious babies by honoring their legacy.
Since the idea of photography during this stressful and pain filled time may not occur to families, NILMDTS depends on people like you and your staff to share information about this free service. Our professional photographers allow families to honor and cherish their babies in a memorable way and help capture the spirit of their lives together.
NILMDTS asks that you partner with us in our mission. When you are faced with a parent or family in this position, please think about Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and contact the organization. Together, we may be able to ease the pain grieving parents experience by photographing a family’s brief time together.
