Three Little Birds is proud to announce the addition of another Stillbirthday-Certified Bereavement Doula and Loss Mama, Roseanne Bolger!
Roseanne reached out to us after relocating to the Philadelphia Metro Area with her husband Cody, to connect with other pregnancy and infant loss doulas. She and Cody attended our first Craft 'N Sip event this past February. The goal of the event was to gather families together to connect, talk and create a beautiful piece of art in their baby’s memory. For February, our craft included Succulent Birdhouse Nightlights for each family to personalize in memory of their sweet baby or loved one.
Roseanne and Cody attended the event in memory of their precious daughter, Tela, born at 21 weeks, who passed away shortly after birth. They were able to spend a lot of time holding, loving, honoring and bonding with Tela in the hours after her passing. These are memories that both her parents hold sacred. “It was during this time with Tela that I understood how important it was for me to bond with her and I knew I wanted to help other moms going through the same thing. We held her, sang to her, kissed her all over and took many photographs. We wanted these memories to last a lifetime”, says Roseanne.
At the event, Roseanne and Cody spoke proudly of their daughter, shared aspects of their experience and went home feeling supported in a way they hadn’t before. After talking in more depth with Roseanne about the services and programs Three Little Birds offers, she knew she wanted to volunteer to support our mission. Not only is Roseanne a loss mother and a bereavement doula, she is also a talented photographer who can assist in providing the gift of professional remembrance portraiture to families like hers in the community!
Three Little Birds is excited to have Roseanne and Cody join our nest to help families like ours have the best possible experience on the worst day of their lives. Cody remarked at the event about the lack of support available to dads enduring these losses as well as being the support person for their partner. He is joining to help connect dads together as well to support one another. Roseanne will primarily serve families in the Bucks County, PA region as well as supporting families, as possible, in the City of Philadelphia.
“Through being involved with Three Little Birds, and helping other families, I get to honor my sweet girl's life in the most special way. There is nothing that fills my heart more than to make sure nobody feels alone during a time like this and to help them make beautiful memories of their beautiful baby, sweet memories that will last forever.”, remarks Roseanne.
Welcome to the nest Roseanne! We are lucky to have you!
