©2019 by Three Little Birds Perinatal - Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support (a FNC fiscally sponsored non-profit project).

OUR STORY

Three Little Birds Perinatal & Palliative Care Advocacy & Support Center was founded in 2016 after the Kristen and Brent Samuelson lost their two precious daughters, Jimmie Anne Samuelson, stillborn in October 2014 at nearly 28 weeks gestation and Chloe Rainbow, an 11-week misdiagnosed ectopic pregnancy.  While they received satisfactory medical care, they were appalled and disappointed by the lack of emotional and spiritual support offered to us by the hospital.  Twice, the Samuelson’s were forced to say hello and goodbye to their children in hours and discharged back into the world incredibly unsupported on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.  After a few weeks of healing, they sought out their own resources and found mountains of support online and in the local community. Unfortunately, their family is just one of millions across the globe left unsupported through such a traumatic and life-changing loss.


The Bob Marley Song, Three Little Birds, was the inspiration for this endeavor.  While pregnant with her first daughter, Kristen would hear the song frequently and believed it was a reminder to...."not worry about a thing, because every little thing, is going to be alright", as the lyrics imply, during a stressful first pregnancy.  While things did not turn out as planned, everything eventually has become better and more "alright" as they moved forward in their healing journey into a “new normal”.  All worrying did was rob her of the time she had to share with baby, something she will always be haunted by. 
 
The efforts and outreach of Three Little Birds Perinatal is inspired by the Samuelson’s two children but done in memory of all the babies lost by families throughout our region.
