In cooperation with Des Moines area hospitals, we offer our facilities for cremation and memorial services for families who have had a baby die prior to 20 weeks gestation. Families who choose to be a part of this special program are invited to attend a Memorial Service, honoring the life of their child. Staff from participating hospitals, along with Hamilton’s staff, conduct the service, which takes place twice a year.
Additionally, families can attend a special burial service that takes place once every five years at the Highland Memory Gardens Cemetery in the “Best Friends” section.
