Earlier this summer, the Philadelphia Inquirer invited Three Little Birds to discuss the emotional and financial aspects of losing a baby and/or pregnancy. The healthcare costs of having a healthy baby are staggering, and even more so for families who leave the hospital empty armed and broken hearted.
If you have suffered out of pocket healthcare costs after experiencing a miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal loss and would like to share your story, please let us know and we will put you in contact with Sarah Gantz at the Philadelphia Inquirer. They are seeking other brave families to discuss their experiences and the out of pocket costs they incurred. It is sharing our experiences that helps institute change and helps others understand!
In an effort to help family and friends support their loved ones through Pregnancy and Infant Loss, Three Little Birds has launched our new Support and Comfort Boxes. We are offering two different box sizes for purchase; our Comfort Boxes offer several items donated by volunteers and supporters to help provide comfort to families suffering from miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal loss. Our Support Boxes contain the same items as the Comfort Boxes, with additional higher priced, handmade items donated by our volunteers. A full listing of these items are provided in the item listing on our Etsy Page.
We offer two options for purchase to support miscarriage (loss before 20 weeks gestation) and infant loss (loss after 20 weeks gestation). Our organization's symbol for miscarriage are butterflies, as many people worldwide associate them with the loss of a baby. Our baby loss boxes have a bird theme to coincide with our organization's namesake, the song, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley and the Wailers.

The purchase of this box will benefit Three Little Birds services and programs we provide to support families in the Philadelphia/South Jersey Metro area. Three Little Birds Perinatal & Palliative Care Advocacy & Support Center is a non-profit, fiscally sponsored by Federation of Neighborhood Centers (FNC) Philly. Our organization provides all of our social services at no cost to the family. We also do not directly solicit for support to the families we serve, however, we greatly appreciate the support of our families with whom choose to give back to us after we have walked their journey. Our volunteer-based non-profit depends on the support of the local community to continue to keep our services for free to everyone. Thank you for your on-going support, kindness and sharing of our information and resources! Donations can be made via check (payable to: Federation of Neighborhood Centers/Memo: Three Little Birds) or via the PayPal link on our website.
