Rhonda-Lynne Brings Comfort for Those Experiencing Infant Loss

Rhonda-Lynne Lanctot                                 April 2021


"From personal experience I know the sense of emptiness and loss involved in miscarriage," began Rhonda-Lynne from Canada.


"We had multiple miscarriages but no matter what we did nothing worked. We both felt the loss overwhelming at times.


For me it was a void I just couldn’t fill."


Rhonda-Lynne said hugs helped her get through sad times, but there wasn’t always someone around to hug.


"I cuddled the bear that was a gift from my husband when we were first dating. I wore that little bear almost to scraps".


There was something about curling up around that bear and snuggling was soothing and healing for her.


"I wanted to create this line of bears to try to help others in some little way, to give some comfort to those who have also experienced this life altering loss." she said.

In her line of Infant Loss bears there are 3 sizes of bears to allow the grieving mother to pick the perfect snuggle size.


Depending on the bear’s size they can be weighted up to 9lbs/4kg to match the
baby’s weight.

Once you have decided on the size and weight of your bear then Rhonda-Lynne works with you to choose the bear's fabric colors and style.


Fabric options can be out of her stock, or the client can bring in fabric, if you don’t find something that suits you.


Each bear comes wearing a baby onesie and a little blanket to wrap him/her up in.

There are a variety of options for these bears, including custom onesies with Awareness Ribbons, one of those being the ribbon for Infant Loss.


Along with the little onesie and blanket Rhonda-Lynne adds a crystal heart chosen from Rose Quartz or Amethyst. These crystals can help with healing or if you choose, the crystals can tucked inside the bear.


The crystal properties are as follows:
Rose Quartz - known as a healing crystal and the stone of unconditional love. It's believed by some to emit strong vibrations of love, which are thought to: support emotional and relationship healing and inspire compassion.

Amethyst - Alleviates sadness and grief, and activates spiritual awareness. It has strong healing and cleansing powers.


Each special bear comes with a hang tag with all of the information about the baby bear; name, size, date completed and materials used.

"My hope for these bears is to help bring some small bit of comfort and to help with
healing. I feel that so often miscarriages and infant loss isn’t treated as seriously as
other losses in ones life by people who really have no idea how devastating it can be," said Rhonda-Lynne.

"I’m very thankful every day that two beautiful woman allowed us to adopt and parent their babies, but my angel babies will always hold a special place in my heart and I will always have my little bear to cuddle when those memories take over again."
