the Momma bear
When a baby dies, the grief is infinite.
In 2017, Momma Bear’s founders lost their daughter in the 40th week of pregnancy – one of the most dramatic events that can happen to parents. What followed was a period of mourning, in which they looked for ways to make their loss more bearable.
This was the start of the development of Momma Bear. After a long search, they found partners who could make a high-quality bear with the weight and the height of the baby. From this month onwards, the bear is largely handmade in a Dutch workshop.
Each Momma Bear is unique and a wonderful way to commemorate a deceased baby and fill empty hands a little.
Capture a moment in time
Each Momma Bear is created with great care and attention to detail. Momma Bears can be customized with an individual baby’s exact height and weight.
A bow and the name of the little one embroidered in a range of beautiful colours make each unique Momma Bear complete.
A great mother who is protective, but in a good way. she behaves like a mother bear in every sense of the word; caring, protective, helpful, loving, powerful and strong.

Each year, Momma Bear donates part of its proceeds to three foundations dedicated to supporting grieving parents and preventing infant mortality.
Every year the Momma Bear team selects three foundations that focus on the theme of infant mortality. These foundations receive a portion of the proceeds from the Momma Bear. This year Momma Bear is donating little bears to the Belgian Berrefonds. These bears are part of the cherishing case. This suitcase is given to parents whose baby dies.

The certificate states personal details, such as name, height and weight, and a unique number that lets us always retrieve your bear.
