When people at the Passover Seder talk about the 4 sons, NechamaComfort’s Founder thinks of the fifth son, the one who isn’t here, her first-born son who lived and died on Passover. He was only 12 hours old.
Thousands and thousands of families are just like hers – missing a child from infant death, stillbirth or miscarriage. 1 in 4 pregnancies ends this way, so you or someone you know is grieving alone this holiday.
Now families do not have to grieve alone. They can turn to NechamaComfort: to hold their hands in the hospital, to help them bury their children with dignity, to guide them in moving through the pain, and to learn from other families how to live with a piece of themselves missing. We guide doctors, clergy, friends, families, and coworkers how to be helpful – practical do’s and don’ts so those suffering have the right support to heal.
We’ve comforted hundreds of families around the world and every day more reach out for help. This Passover, we ask you to partner with us so we can continue to be there for every grieving family.
NechamaComfort is a non-profit organization supporting families of all Jewish backgrounds through the trauma of miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss. We offer individual and family counseling, support groups, a network of peers, training for medical personnel and clergy, and sensitivity programs for communities and workplaces.
