Deciding Which Box To Get?
If you’re supporting someone through loss and are not sure which box to get, we provide guidance here on making that decision.
If you know how far along in the pregnancy they were:
- Up to week 20 - We recommend purchasing the Care For Miscarriage Box with potential add-ons, such as Mesh Underwear, Maxi Pads and Breast Pads, to fully support them based on when the loss was experienced.
- After week 20 - We recommend purchasing the Care For Stillbirth Box. If they delivered their baby via C-section, we suggest the Belly Band as well.
If you don’t know how far along in the pregnancy they were:
- Did they have to deliver their baby? If so, we recommend purchasing the Care For Stillbirth Box. If they had a C-section, we suggest the Belly Band as well.
- If they did not deliver, we recommend the Care For Miscarriage Box with potential add-ons, such as Mesh Underwear, Maxi Pads and Breast Pads, to fully support them during their loss.

FOR YOUR PHYSICAL RECOVERY
Mesh Underwear (3)
Postpartum bleeding, or lochia, is a part of the physical recovery after second or third trimester loss. These boyshorts (one-size-fits-most) provide comfort and breathability as you recover from surgery or delivery after loss.
Giant Maxi Pads (14)
These soft and absorbent maternity maxi pads were designed for the heavy flow that is typically experienced after second or third trimester loss.
Organic Breast Pads (2)
Experiencing lactation after a second or third trimester loss is common. If your milk does come in, these washable breast pads can catch excess milk and prevent leaking. In our article here on physical recovery after loss, you can learn more about lactation cessation in depth.
Recovery Latte: Restore
It’s common to feel out of control and disconnected from your body after experiencing pregnancy loss. Our turmeric recovery blend is intended to be a tool used to reclaim agency, reconnect with your body, and refocus on nurturing it. This blend is rooted in Indian tradition — supporting you physically with the benefits from turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and other superfoods, while also allowing you to actively care for yourself when you truly most need it.
