Bereavement Resources

TTMF has parent mentors who have personally suffered the loss of a child and have the unique ability to provide comfort and understanding to bereaved parents. We also offer referrals to local bereavement support groups, memory portrait artists, therapists, and bereavement resources.  Our bereavement support envelopes are located at each hospital and our office. The staff at the NICU provides this TTMF Support information to any parent who has experienced the loss of their baby.  If you have a family member or friend who has experienced the loss of their premature baby, please contact us at info@ttmf.org and we will send you our support package.

At a family's request, a NILMDTS Affiliated Photographer will come to your hospital and conduct a sensitive and private portrait session.
