CRMC to host butterfly release to help those grieving the loss of an infant or child


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is inviting families who have lost an infant or young child, or those who have had a miscarriage, stillbirth, or ectopic pregnancy to come to a butterfly release to remember those they have lost.

The event will take place on June 11 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Warren Rest House in Holliday Park, at the corner of Alexander Avenue and East 19th Street.

In a release, Jenny Ash, a CRMC labor and delivery nurse and perinatal coordinator, said, “Bereaved families often value a ceremony like this that allows them to honor and celebrate their child’s memory. For many, the butterfly release provides a time of support and healing both for the families and our employees who work with families during a time of loss.”

The butterfly release is also a way for families and Cheyenne Regional staff to reconnect.


This will be the ninth year that Cheyenne Regional is offering the butterfly release.

To participate and reserve a butterfly, families can either complete the online form at https://www.cheyenneregional.org/service/motherbaby/butterfly-release/ or call (307) 633-7803.
