"Support, Information, Encouragement"
This charity provides support for mothers who are carrying a child with an early diagnosis. If the diagnosis is terminal they offer support, gifts, information, as well as email addresses for other moms who have gone through the same thing. If the mother wants to carry a sick child to term but does not think that she will be able to care for it once he or she is born, then this charity has information available and actively supports these moms as well.
This charity is run by a mother and father who experienced prenatal loss. They provide non-medical 3D and 4D ultrasounds for parents that have received a fatal diagnosis. After I contacted them, they also provided their personal telephone numbers and told us to call them any time. This is something that we were skeptical about, but has turned out to be one of our most cherished gifts. We have a 45 min DVD of Grace playing happily in the womb.
This charity provides professional photographers to take pictures of your baby and your family in the hospital. There are many websites about anencephaly. Obviously some are more informative than others.
