Bereavement Patterns

Newborns in Need provides burial gowns, burial pouches and memorial envelopes.

These are patterns that some of our chapters use for burial gowns, burial pouches, memorial items and memory envelopes.  If you have a heart for helping out in this area and you do not have a chapter near you, please send your donation to our national office or to the closest chapter in your area.

All hand-made donations that Newborns In Need sends out are free of charge to the recipient.
