Every year we receive many inspiring stories of compassionate care given to members of our community during some of their darkest times. It is never easy for a parent to have to say goodbye to their much wanted baby but these caregivers help make it less awful for families experiencing this tragic loss. 

It is heartwarming that every year so many people in our community are moved enough by their medical support caregivers that they nominate them to receive this award.

About the Compassionate Care Awards:

     We wish our organization didn’t have to exist. We wish babies didn’t die and parents did not have to hear the words, “I’m sorry, there is no heartbeat.” Tragically, this happens every day and we try to be there for families experiencing loss every step of the way – providing connections, comfort and care - but also as a resource for caregivers wanting to best support their patients.

   The Compassionate Care Awards is one of our largest fundraisers every year. However, it is much more than a fundraiser – it is an inspirational event that recognizes exemplary care given to someone who has experienced a pregnancy or infant loss. Care providers are nominated by members of our loss community and selected by our Board of Directors. This evening event typically includes an incredible silent auction and raffle, live entertainment and awards ceremony. Aside from providing operating funds to the organization, the event always inspires our board members, volunteers and staff to continue doing the important work we do.

     In 2022, we can all use some inspiration and we really want to share some amazing stories of how caregivers have gone the extra mile for families who have lost babies during the pandemic. In addition, we want to be able to honor some professional caregivers who have been able to attend a special perinatal bereavement training this year thanks to Hope After Loss.

     Every year we receive many inspiring stories of compassionate care given to members of our community during some of their darkest times. It is never easy for a parent to have to say goodbye to their much wanted baby but these caregivers help make it less awful for families experiencing this tragic loss.
