Come and find out what's happening with
Three Little Birds Perinatal has the ability to help so many Rainbow families because of amazing volunteers, like our own Desiree Miller. Desiree and her business partner, Stacy, own and operate Image is Everything Studios in Swedesboro, NJ. They are always willing to use their studio space, as well as donate their time, for anything we may need. So many Palliative Care families have benefited from complimentary Maternity portrait sessions and belly castings. Even more recently, the families we've helped have begun returning to the studio for complimentary Rainbow Maternity portrait sessions, all in an effort to honor our families after their losses. Desiree has an ability to communicate the emotion in your photos with wanting to incorporate your child that can't be here, to the child now on the way. It is something so many people love about her images when working with Three Little Birds and our Palliative Care program!
And thank goodness for Stacy; her willingness to help out whenever needed and always ready to be our videographer for Three Little Birds filming/interviews. She's also volunteered countless hours creating items for our support boxes, sewing heating pads for post-partum moms and being that extra hand for belly casting.
We really do not know what we would do without Image is Everything Studios and just wanted to take a moment to thank them from the bottom of our heart!
As always, all families receiving Palliative Care services through TLB will always receive a maternity session at absolutely no charge, either through Image is Everything Studios or another local photographer (on the off chance they are not available in an emergent situation.
For returning Rainbow Baby Families, Image is Everything Studios is kind enough to offer a complimentary session with 5 digital images and 25% off of any additional purchases. If you would also like Image is Everything to also do your newborn session, the session fee will also be complimentary to existing TLB families only, but no images will be included. All TLB families will be offered a 25% discount from normal pricing! *One offer per qualifying family
Thank you Image is Everything Studios, both Desiree and Stacy! You never cease to amaze us with your generosity and beautiful work! www.imageiseverythingstudios.com
In an effort to provide empathetic support where it is lacking, Three Little Birds is seeking to develop a Dad's Support Network to support the varying needs of father's who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss, or infertility.
The goal of this group is to gather interested men who can assist in the development of support items, events and outreach to other father's experiencing similar circumstances.
If you are interested in joining our group of empathetic father's to develop these services and programs, please contact email@example.com with your name and contact information. We will be in touch soon about what we are working on, any ideas or connections you may have and how we can provide this much needed support immediately and long term!
In late 2017, Three Little Birds was gifted more than 100, unique, handcrafted Angel Gowns, to be given to families suffering from stillbirth or neonatal loss. These gowns are created from donated wedding gowns and gifted to families as burial gowns. Every baby deserves a beautiful garment!
The angel gown donation we received from "Grandma Angel" varied in sizes, colors and styles to suit each and every unique baby. The gowns are donated and deconstructed then created from patterns for the various sizes of babies. In addition to gorgeous gowns, seamstresses also make "Premie Pockets" for second trimester losses who are too small for a traditional angel gown.
Nationwide, volunteer seamstresses are creating these gorgeous gowns for their local hospitals and families. We are fortunate to Christine Unander for volunteering her time to become Three Little Bird's in-house Angel Gown Coordinator!
This program has become very popular and we have received numerous requests to accept donated gowns. Three Little Birds will be collecting gowns over the next six weeks, leading up to Mother's Day, to be sent to our seamstresses!
The Program accepts clean wedding or evening gowns (light pink, blue, or cream ONLY) to be considered for this program. You can drop off your donation at the following locations:
GOWN DROP OFF THROUGH MAY 12
Porch Drop Off -- Image is Everything Studios, `1428 Kings Highway, Swedesboro, NJ
(please leave on front porch in a box or bag with a note it is for the Angel Gown Program.
Additionally, we will be collecting gowns at the South Jersey Family & Maternity Fair on May 12th at the Float Haven Spa in Pitman, NJ! This event is sponsored by the Float Haven Spa, Wondertime, LLC, the Essential Light worker and the Village Breastfeeding & Wellness. It is a wonderful event, with vendors, giveaways and lots of love and support!
If you live outside the area, boxes can be shipped to Image is Everything Studios.
