Pregnancy Loss | Black's Funeral Home | Thurmont, MD Funeral Home and Cremation

Pregnancy Loss

Children are precious, even those that are unborn. More and more parents and families have long sought options in order to reflect and memorialize the baby lost during pregnancy be that by miscarriage or stillbirth.

Until recently parents was limited in their choices as they were mostly unable to see their baby, therefore limiting viewing and opportunity to take photos with the baby especially at young gestational ages.

Knowing that there is a lack of options, our funeral home sought out to provide options never before offered to parents and families of pregnancy loss.

Through a process called saline submersion we are able to allow parents and others to see your baby even when they are incredibly small.

We have a complete line of caskets that accommodate the saline submersion container.

We have many styles to fit your needs and budget.

You may choose a flannel baby blanket covering or a gold ornate fabric covering bag for your baby who is less than 20 weeks gestation.

The cloth coverings allow the parents to wrap the baby while in the bottle.  This provides a safe comfortable way for the parents to cuddle their child without harming their baby's fragile skin since the baby is protected inside the bottle.
