Hi, my name is Allison Schaaf, my own fertility journey, including 5 miscarriages, inspired me to create this website to help YOU navigate your own fertility journey.

In this article I share ideas for honoring miscarriage and infant loss through art. Miscarriage art can be a lovely gift for a friend or loved one, or to purchase for yourself as a meaningful miscarriage memorial. The list includes items like custom drawings, paintings representing angel babies and art prints incorporating your baby’s ultrasound photo or heartbeat.

    From art prints using an ultrasound photo to custom drawings of your angel baby, miscarriage art is a meaningful way to honor your loss.

    Miscarriage Art – A Way to Remember and Honor your Loss

    Many women and families who have suffered miscarriage or infant loss are seeking a way to honor and remember that beloved, lost child. A meaningful painting, drawing or photograph can be a lovely miscarriage memorial.

    Whether you’re looking for a painting that captures the feelings of a mother’s love and grief or custom artwork depicting your baby’s face, there are many options for thoughtful miscarriage art. Think about what symbols and images are meaningful to you.

    Do you want a piece that depicts your unique baby and family or something that captures the feelings of love and loss inherent in pregnancy loss?

    Do you want something subtle where only you know the meaning or something that immediately calls to mind your loss to others who view the art as well?
