Who We Are
Remembering Cherubs is a pregnancy loss resource hub, primarily serving southeast Michigan. We bring together a variety of pregnancy loss resources in one convenient space.
What We Do
As many as half of all pregnancies may end in loss. Yet, following loss, few resources exist to guide the process of grieving, healing, or steps to move forward. What little is out there is often scattered and hard to find. We want to change that. Our web-based Resource Center connects individuals and families to groups and organizations, written works, and miscellaneous services that support the process of coping well after loss.
Guided educational vision board sessions from subject matter experts in the areas of five major forms of health: Emotional, Mental, Physical, Social, and Spiritual

Educational tip sheets created with expert input that answer commonly asked questions on pregnancy loss related issues
Articles on pregnancy loss related issues, featured resources, and upcoming events

Mission, Vision & Values
Our mission is to provide support, guidance, and education to parents and those seeking to support them following pregnancy loss.
Our vision is to work closely with medical and health professionals to establish care plans, founded on our core values of Support, Guidance and Education, that individuals and families can follow independently or in concert with a health professional.
We work toward our mission in three main ways:
Support - Through partnerships with grief-centered organizations to provide peer-to-peer and group support to those in grief, at no cost.
Guidance – Through original and shared resources such as our digital Loss Support Toolkit and Resource Center.
Education – By hosting in-person and virtual events in partnership with subject matter experts to educate parents and those seeking to support them, on pregnancy loss related issues.
