As I searched my notes, I remembered that what we did for the triplets was a blend of a standard baby-naming ceremony (two girls were born) which you can see if you click here, where instead of the first paragraph of the “prayer for surviving hardship” we inserted the prayer below by Rabbi Arnold Stiebel. This gave the couple the opportunity to acknowledge their loss, while still celebrating the birth of their daughters. Happy to hear different suggestions, if you have them!
