Remembering Cherubs is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a mission to provide emotional support and educational guidance to mothers and their loved ones following pregnancy loss.
As many as half of all pregnancies may end in loss. Yet, following loss, few resources exist to guide mothers on the journey to wellness. Remembering Cherubs addresses this problem by bringing together pregnancy loss support resources in one convenient space. This is accomplished in three main ways:
Support - We partner with grief-centered organizations to provide peer-to-peer and group support to grieving mothers and their loved ones, at no cost.
Guidance – Our Loss Support Toolkit features a guidebook and other tools to guide mothers through pregnancy loss related issues.
Education – We host bi-monthly self-care events in partnership with industry experts to educate mothers on overall wellness.
We aim to be the go-to source for pregnancy loss resources in the state of Michigan.
Our Vision & Values
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 mothers can follow independently or in concert with a health professional. Through our Loss Support Toolkit, partnerships and support programs, we aim to be the go-to source for pregnancy loss resources in the state of Michigan and ultimately around the globe.
Monica Anderson is the Founder and Executive Director of Remembering Cherubs. After pregnancy losses 22 years apart, Anderson found few resources to help navigate the emotional journey."From my greatest pain, I was inspired to create Remembering Cherubs. I felt compelled to do something that would ensure women have the support and guidance they need through what could be one of the most challenging times in their lives," says Anderson. "Creating this organization was my act of service and a labor of love."
Remembering Cherubs' startup work began shortly after Anderson's September 2018 loss. Within months, Remembering Cherubs' Board of Directors had been formed and Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws were adopted. We officially became recognized as a nonprofit corporation by the state of Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs in April 2019. On April 25, 2019, we received tax exempt status under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3).
