Comfort Companions/Doulas & Remembrance Photography
Professionally-trained Comfort Companions and Remembrance Photographers offer in-person physical and emotional support before, during, and after pregnancy, in Ohio & Michigan. Our Comfort Team provides remembrance photography services, resources, and memory-making items. They are there to help create memories as you meet your baby, also offering long-term support following the birth/loss.

SGM offers support options, bringing peace as families continue their grief journey. Private online support groups are available on Facebook, in-person monthly support groups located in the five different regions in Ohio, and recommended books and blogs listed on the SGM website.
Although SGM creates it’s own resources, often with generous input from the families SGM has had the privilege to serve, there are also a number of other resources that you may find helpful. For a list of these resources and blogs, visit Additional Resources.
Throughout the year, SGM hosts a number of events centered around families touched by loss. The largest event is the Race for Grace PAIL and Remembrance 5k Walk/Run. This event is located at the SGM Headquarters in Deshler, Ohio and includes an opportunity to do a mile long walk around the Deshler Reservoirs which is lined with Remembrance signs and a baby name reading, where we are able to remember our sweet babies together!
