As you all know, the feelings mothers have following the death of their child are complex and profound. They are very often experienced in silence and isolation. We want to understand your experience. Harvard University is conducting this research so that one day we can counsel others in what to expect and better understand who is at risk for more difficult reactions.
We plan to build on this research by designing support programs for those with the greatest need. But first we need to understand the broad spectrum of feelings and experiences mothers face after the sudden death of their baby. Your participation will help us do that!
Information collected on this survey will be used for research purposes only. Your responses will be kept confidential and no one will be able to link any survey information back to you.

If you are looking for some Christmas cheer that comes in spite of a personal tragedy- this is it! A Dad in Australia is raising money for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) awareness and support for families affected by the unthinkable and unexplained deaths of their babies. He was inspired to take action after his own one-month old died of SIDS in 2002.
How? By using his World Record Christmas light display! He’s already raised more than $200,000 for SIDS for Kids, an Australian organization that supports awareness and support for grieving families.
