GLORY BABY MINISTRY

Glory Baby Ministry’s mission is to bring glory to God by caring for those grieving through pregnancy and infant loss.

We specialize in making burial gowns or memorial packages for parents grieving a miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant loss.

​We respect that the grieving process is different for every family. Therefore, we will send a package no matter if the loss was recent or years ago.
