The Glimmer Project

Supporting women who have experienced pregnancy and newborn loss


The Glimmer Project was built to support you and the millions of other women who experience pregnancy or newborn loss every single year.

 

 

 

Miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal loss is a terrible tragedy and you should not have to go through this alone. Glimmer exists to give hope, light, connection and guidance.


 

The Online Glimmer Program

Perhaps you find yourself wanting:

  • more peer support
  • to optimize your mind and body while managing this terrible grief
  • to find peacefulness amidst the ravages of grief
  • to connect in a more spiritual way with your beloved baby who has passed on

Well you have found the right place.

The Glimmer Program is a unique program designed to support you and your well being through this cruel tragedy of miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal loss.  

In the program, you will receive:

  • video content of grief management tools and coping strategies to navigate and weather the triggers and hardships of grief
  • supply daily guided mindfulness meditations to allow you to find peacefulness and strength. 
  • an online private small support group of fellow women, run by our very own, experienced bereavement midwife

Glimmer is run as non-profit and any excess money raised from the sale of this program goes straight to funding The Glimmer Project and stillbirth prevention research.

May you find connection

May you find acceptance

May you be happy

 "You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair."
