In an effort to globally #shatterthestigma of pregnancy and infant loss, Three Little Birds Perinatal & Palliative Care Advocacy & Support Center (Three Little Birds Perinatal) is excited to announce we have our own volunteer-designed and produced Announcement cards for families suffering from the loss of a baby through stillbirth or after a stay in the NICU, as well as for families awaiting their rainbow baby and want to celebrate all their children with whom they love!
Validation is key to families suffering from the loss of a pregnancy/baby. There are no words to express the feelings of joy and sorrow that you experience, but they are both there. Parents of babies who pass away are still parents and very proud of their children. Just because they are physically not with us, the love we have for them will never go away. Society often does not give a voice to these families, so we are helping families share the love of their child as they would have had they been born living and healthy. Join me in thanking our talented volunteer, Linda Kong, for her creativity and enthusiasm in creating these beautiful announcement cards. Linda is a loss mom who volunteers in memory of her sons, Peanut, Greyson and Emmett. <3
Many people have not heard the term "Rainbow Baby", but many in the loss community will refer to a baby born unto them after experiencing pregnancy and infant loss as a metaphor for the rainbow that comes after the storm. Three Little Birds Perinatal understands and respects not every family accepts or uses this term to refer to their pregnancy after loss. We encourage families to find the language and expressions that suit them best and if you wish to have announcement cards made to celebrate your pregnancy, we can work with you to design one that does! We are open to learning and celebrating all families and their connections in their healing. Thank you to co-founder/doula/photographer extraordinaire Desiree Miller for designing our Rainbow Baby Announcements!

Thank you for your support! We love having our families come back and volunteer and share the love of their children with us and to inspire us!
