Because many of our children are not recognized by the law, but their existence is real and changed our lives and those of many others' even if we don't know.
Their existence is worth acknowledging and this non-official certificate of life can bring them honor and memory.
I wish midwives, student midwives and bereaved parents can use those templates when the hospital don't offer such certificates.
Ida Saoirse Scherer,
our first baby girl, who was born and died at 16+5 weeks on the 30th November 2017.
