About the Author

Sherokee Ilse is a mother who had three children die too young - Marama in Miscarriage, Brennan in Stillbirth, and Marama in Ectopic Pregnancy. A mission-driven woman, she is one of the pioneering authors and parent advocates in the field of infant loss. Her mission for the past 30 years has been to transform the system in order to better support families at the time of their loss and over time. She has committed herself to continuously inform the professional caregivers and the families' community to see these children as important family members who will be loved, grieved for, and remembered forever.

As an internationally renowned speaker and trainer in perinatal loss, Sherokee speaks at conferences, full and half day inservices, and at support groups on many related subjects. With over 17 books and booklets on the subject, she is one of the experts who compassionately supports families and empowers caregivers to better understand the feelings and needs of bereaved parents/families. As an early founder of a national pregnancy loss organization, she co-founded Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month every October.

While president of her own company Wintergreen Press Inc (www.WintergreenPress.com)and Babies Remembered (www.BabiesRemembered.org),she has launched a new endeavor by co-founding Loss Doulas International (www.LossDoulasInternational.com) in hopes that when families learn the news that their baby has died or will die, they are linked to a Loss Doula who can offer preparatory help, companionship in the hospital, and postpartum support over time.
She lives in Arizona and Minnesota and has a husband and two adult sons.
