Lactation After Loss



Empty Arms is proud to offer our own, compassionately written
"Lactation After Loss" pamphlet which is now being used in hospitals in over 20 states nationwide. It is available in both English and Spanish. 

Our pamphlet covers the mechanics of what mothers can do with their milk when a baby dies- for most that's suppression, while a few may choose to pump and donate. However, what our pamphlet also covers, and we believe to be equally important, is the very difficult emotional process of lactation after loss.

If you are interested in using this pamphlet within your hospital or facility, please email Generally, we will share the files for the pamphlets for a one-time donation so that you can print them and continue to give them to the families who need them, without ever needing to re-order from us. If you're in a state with a milk bank, we will even modify the brochure to contain information about your local milk bank.
