Loss of a Pregnancy at Home
If you lose a pregnancy while you are at home, here are some options for you:
- You can hold a memorial service at your house.
- You can arrange your own private memorial service at any funeral home.
- You can join in a group ceremony provided by UAMS and Roller Funeral Homes (free of charge).
If you are interested in a free group ceremony, please place your baby in the container provided and take it to the nearest Roller Funeral Home. Here is a list of all of the locations in Arkansas. Roller will take your baby to the Roller on Chenal in Little Rock to join all of the other babies in cremation. We will hold a memorial ceremony every spring to honor and remember your precious little one that was lost too soon.
There is a plot at the Riverwood Memorial Gardens in Maumelle, Arkansas (301 Carnahan Dr, Maumelle, AR 72113). This will be your baby’s final resting place and a place that you can visit to reflect, pray, talk to your baby, gather in fellowship and remember.
The UAMS staff would like to offer our deepest sympathies as you go through this time of loss. Please remember, you are not alone. You and your family are in our thoughts.
