Cradled in Hope Podcast: Grieving Differently after Pregnancy Loss with Moria Rooney




What a joy it was to share all that God has done in me and through Noah's short life on the Cradled in Hope Podcast. Incredible thank you to Bridget's Cradles and Ashley Opliger.


Ashley, you are a gift to the bereaved parent community. All that you have done is truly nothing more than a work of God. May the Lord continue to expand your ministry and pour out favor on you and your family. I pray an abundance over you. May God anoint everything that you touch and may your eyes stay lifted towards the Father. You took your misery and turned it into your mission. It's such an honor to work alongside you with Mother of Wilde as we carry out the great commission. To love people and love them well - especially in a time of grief. I pray blessing over our friendship.

Bridget, you have one amazing mom. What she has done to honor you through Bridget's Cradles is incredible. Your life lives on. Your name lives on. Your story continues to be shared. The impact you have made in this world is beyond words. Know how incredibly missed you are. I can't wait to meet you in heaven one day. Give my sweet Noah a big squeeze for me.

In this podcast, I share how my faith in Jesus allowed me to grieve differently than the world grieves: with hope. Even after unanswered prayers and a devastating loss, I learned to trust in God's good and unchanging character. Now, I bless grieving moms with beautiful prints of their babies to remind them of the hope they have to see their babies again in Heaven.


In this episode, we discussed:

  • How to have faith when God doesn't perform the miracle you prayed for

  • What it's like giving birth to death

  • Why don't we blame Satan for our loss instead of God?

  • Suffering's role in the Christian's life

  • Searching for answers and the 'why'

  • The complexities of sharing photos of our babies who have died

  • Why memorial prints are so special and important

  • How Mother of Wilde began and what they do

  • Planting seeds for the Gospel

  • Using your strengths, skills, and even college degrees for God's glory

  • A coupon code for 15% off a baby memorial print


Bridget's Cradles is a nonprofit organization based in Wichita, Kansas that donates cradles to over 1,250 hospitals in all 50 states and comforts over 26,000 bereaved families a year.
