Child Remembrance Ceremony and Women Circle 2020 REPLAY
A meaningful ceremony and women circle that celebrates every child, infant, and baby who has passed on during early pregnancy to adulthood. A sacred acknowledgement of our forever love, an opportunity to say how much we miss them and what they truly meant to us.
For women, by women.
This event is for you if you are a mother or have been a mother even for only a brief instant.
Your child’s passing could have happened very recently or perhaps it was decades ago.
It does not matter.
The ceremony will help you connect or reconnect with your child and honour his/her presence in your life.
Today you have permission to bring your child to the forefront of your mind, your body, your heart, your love, and open up the book of loving memories.
I created this event because I am angry.
Did you realise society expects bereaved mothers to “move on” at some point?
With its tacit understanding that there is a “socially acceptable” length of time for grieving?
That social pressure forces us to shut down, hiding the depth of our real suffering..
With no outlay to express both the unspeakable love that was taken away from us and the rage we feel inside at the unfairness of it all!
But don’t we celebrate living people’s birthday every year? Why can’t we celebrate living people who have passed on?
So today is the day where, we, mothers of all ages, background, colours, beliefs and stories get together..
And form a sacred circle in honour of all the children who’ve left us.

TAKEAWAYS from the Participants
“I opened up to my healing and my acceptance. And the connection that I have with [my baby] is real and true.”
“My takeaway is the connection that was able to start by being present here and bringing her again into my heart. It was really important for me to be here. Thank you Nathalie, because you somehow just by doing this ceremony, you woke up something in me that it was sleeping for 26 years! Now I feel so alive. And even if it bring me tears, what it does now is more tears of joy because I’m connecting with her in another level.”
“The biggest takeaway for me is hearing your stories and being in the space with you all and feeling how deep and profound this journey of motherhood is, in whatever forms we experience it. I really wanted to honour that in all of you, and myself.”
“It’s such an honour to be in the presence of other women and to be able to do the sacred work. I have always been a person that was doing everything by herself and never asked for help and always felt embarrassed to ask for support from other people. So, I’m really opening up to that to recognise how empowering it is for each other as women to get together and really call each other for everything that’s happening. We just can’t do that by ourselves, there is no way!”
