Often the Dad’s are put to the side when a baby dies. They are sometimes even forgotten about. They are expected to just take over and fix everything. Men are often pushed quickly back into the work place and are made to feel like they should not show emotion. The fact is that dads grieve too. We must allow them to grieve.

International Bereaved Father’s Day is held on second Sunday of September (this year September 10th) We founded this day back in 2010 to help break the silence surrounding their own hurt and grief. We welcome everyone around the world to come together to shine a light on these amazingly courageous fathers.
