Resource and Information Sites:

Naming the Child- provided by the author of the book of the same name, has various resources, poetry, a memorial section, some stories, etc.

The Amethyst Network - a network of doulas providing pregnancy loss support

Still Life With Circles - the "Right Where I Am" project - over 160 links to women's stories of where they are in their grief, anywhere from a few weeks to over a decade.
Hope in Miscarriage - Unique because it is written by a mother who lost twins in the first trimester, but at different gestations. Contains quite a lot of good practical information as well as additional resources.
Stillbirthday - Fairly comprehensive site about miscarriage and stillbirth, similar to this one. There is a photographs page there as well.
Prunci Pierduți Și Născuți Înainte De Vreme. O perspectivă Ortodoxă - (Lost babies and born prematurely. An Orthodox Perspective) This site is more or less the Romanian equivalent of Lost Innocents but features some different stories and information. A great boon to the Romanian-speaking readers!
Angel Babies: Information specifically about dealing with second and third trimester loss. Includes stories, information, a large page of helpful links, and a link to a blog with many, many examples of knitted, sewn and crocheted items for tiny babies.
Life and Loss: A blog/site by a perinatal hospice nurse who has herself suffered loss. Excellent information for everyone but especially for those in the health care arena.

Bev's Country Cottage Patterns - free patterns for shrouds, burial gowns, "cradles" (for tiny babies unable to be dressed) -sewn, crocheted or knit.

Blogs:
 
[If you see ** this means the blogger has been pregnant/had a baby since the miscarriage(s) and blogged about it. So you're not surprised by a trigger I will try to go through all of these periodically to update this part of the list. I know it can be discouraging early on to read about a pregnancy and newborn ("Why not me??") but if you look at this list, you will see that there is hope.]
