Be Ceremonial’s unique platform helps you create a TFMR ceremony by choosing from our library of curated rituals to acknowledge your unique experience.

What is a TFMR Ceremony?

TFMR, or Termination for Medical Reasons, refers to the ending of a pregnancy due to health concerns of the mother and/or unborn child. It is often seen as different from other types of pregnancy loss as it can be shrouded in feelings of guilt, shame and silence. TFMR is often referred to as a decision that isn’t a decision at all.

A TFMR ceremony can offer individuals and/or their community to come together to acknowledge the love they held for their baby, while also grieving the loss of a child and all the future stories that life represented.

Why is it Important?

Providing a framework for grief rituals that honour the life of a deeply loved child can help parents integrate their loss into their day to day life and begin envisioning a path forward that is inclusive of the love and loss they hold.

Ritual and ceremony can serve as a jumping off point to consider how to memorialize such an intense loss and create a legacy that you can carry forward with you. Our rituals offer opportunities to consider what needs to be released, how to be present, and meaningful ways to carry their legacy forward.
