While there are more and more resources for pregnancy, infant and child loss, as well as pregnancy after loss, becoming available, there are still few resources for LGBTQ+ families experiencing loss and pregnancy after loss. As Jessica Clasby-Monk wrote, “I would describe being a same sex couple experiencing baby loss as being in a small pond, within a small pond.”

We’ve compiled some resources for LGBTQ+ families and will continually update this list as more resources become available. Stories are a powerful tool to connect, so many of these resources are families sharing their stories of loss and life after loss.

LGBTQ+ Loss Stories and Resources


#LGBTBabyLoss is a resource created by PALS former bump day blogger, Jessica Clasby-Monk of The Legacy of Leo. The #LGBTBabyLoss blog series shares experiences of early miscarriage, recurrent loss, stillbirth, neonatal death, prematurity, preeclampsia, and twin loss.
