Here are some of the many projects that Gleym mér ei has come up with.
In 2019, educational material on reduced fetal movements was created, which Gleym-mér-ei hosted in collaboration with the Midwifery Association of Iceland, the Health Service and the National Hospital with support from the Ministry of Health and the National Medical Board.

When joy turns to sorrow
Reissue of the brochures "When joy turns to sorrow" in collaboration with Landspítali University Hospital, in 2020.
"We know that the grieving process takes longer than the few days that you and your partner are in our care, who work in the women's wards of Landspítal. We know that this is a difficult time for each of you to deal with grief and hurt feelings.
It is our sincere hope that this booklet will be useful to you on the journey you are currently on, that it will be a support and a guide in your grief and longing. There is no one who can take away the sadness you feel. The booklet and the stories of the parents that follow can hopefully lead your mind to the fact that you are not alone. There are many people who can and want to help you in these difficult situations". (From the brochure "When joy turns into sorrow").
Sorgarmiðstöð (the Grief Center)
Stroller and carrycot
In 2018, Gleym-mér-ei gave Landspítali a pram and a cot as a gift.
In 2021, Gleym-mér-ei donated two beds to Landspítali
Memorial center for fetus
In the summer of 2018, Gleym-mér ei donated a cooler to the cementery's funeral home. It is valuable for parents to have the option of being able to take the child home, have their closest relatives and have a farewell moment at home.
In October 2014, the Gleym mér ei grant fund of Landspítali, the Fjörðungssjúkrahús in Akureyri and the Heilbrígíðisstofnun Vesturlands in Akranes brought cooling cradles for stillborn babies and many people contributed to the cause. Magnús Brynjar Guðjónsson's memorial fund donated the cooler that went to FSA.
Angel parents in Akranes participated in a collection for a refrigerated crib that was donated to the Vestfjörður Health Institute.
Forget me not gives parents who lose children during pregnancy memory box to take home with you.
In September 2016, Gleym mér ei gave to Fæðingervakt and Landspítali's Maternity and Maternity Department 11 boxes to make footprints/hand tracings of stillborn babies. Parents are given the boxes as a souvenir.

Landspítalin donated specially sewn covers for cooling beds at Landspítali, Akureyri and Akranes.
