Steps to Take

Infant and Preemie Burial


Infant Burial and Cremation Laws in Your State

Each state has laws affecting what happens to a body after death. For example, most states have unique rules about embalming, burial or cremation, scattering ashes, and how to get a death certificate.  It is also important that you check with the cemetery you choose for interment; it may have rules requiring a vault or container for the casket.

Further, local governments may have additional rules governing private burials. Before burying a body or scattering ashes on private land or establishing a family cemetery, you should check county and city zoning rules.

Preemie Burial and Cremation Laws in Your State

Preemie burial in the United States is poorly defined, unlike the United Kingdom and some other countries around the world.  In the past few years there has been a push to more clearly define these laws, but once again it is by State, not defined by Federal law.  You most likely are reading this information in hopes of finding better guidance.  To that end, we need to define fetal death (preemie baby loss) first:

The CDC supplies this information regarding Fetal Deaths:

“Fetal death refers to the spontaneous intrauterine death of a fetus at any time during pregnancy. Fetal deaths later in pregnancy (at 20 weeks of gestation or more, or 28 weeks or more, for example) are also sometimes referred to as stillbirths. In the United States, State laws require the reporting of fetal deaths, and Federal law mandates national collection and publication of fetal death data. Most states report fetal deaths of 20 weeks of gestation or more and/or 350 grams birth weight. However, a few states report fetal deaths for all periods of gestation. Fetal death data is published annually by the National Center for Health Statistics, in reports and as individual-record data files.”  CDC NDSS Fetal Death

Local governments may have additional rules governing private burials, even for a Preemie Baby. Before burying a body or scattering ashes on private land or establishing a family cemetery, you should check county and city zoning rules.
