by Stephanie Paige Cole


Your life began and


ended within my womb I


am a sacred space


because of you

Sacred was first published in to linger on hot coals: collected poetic works from grieving women writers


Stephanie’s powerful poem ‘Sacred’ has comforted bereaved mothers around the world and has been the inspiration for our film project and the advocacy work surrounding it. Although Stephanie’s poem was written in memory of her much loved daughter Madeline, who was born still in 2007, her final words “i am a sacred space because of you” continue to resonate and unite ALL mothers. It irrevocably acknowledges the special bond that is shared between mother and child that can never be broken – even following loss.
