Pillows bring comfort to moms who have suffered pregnancy loss

For a woman who has suffered the loss of a child before birth, the effects can be devastating.

Launched in 2003, Heaven Born is a nonprofit project that provides small, handmade fleece pillows to mothers who have suffered an early pregnancy loss.

The idea is the brainchild of Maureen Day, who suffered a pregnancy loss several years ago.
