STILLBIRTH SUPPORT

Through our years working with families, we've seen an overwhelming need for loss support in the LGBTQIA+ community.  In addition to the understandable grief and trauma that comes with reproductive and infant loss, you may also lack support from your families, employers, or medical providers.

Three Little Birds seeks to be the change we want to see in our community.  With your help, sharing your stories (good or bad), and through peer support, perhaps it won't be that hard.  For now, we are proud to offer as many resources as we can find, to give you the support you desire and deserve during this difficult time.

We recognize that the implicit focus on heterosexual couples in pregnancy loss services and resources can make it difficult for those with a different experiences to receive appropriate care or to find connections to others with similar stories. 

 

Three Little Birds aims to advocate for the importance of correctly using names and pronouns in the pursuit of “ensuring that medical experiences following a pregnancy loss do not further compound the potential grief experienced by men, trans/masculine, and non-binary people and their partners.”

Helping families find competent, gender-affirming healthcare providers is also of utmost importance.  If you've personally had a caring doctor or facility walk this journey with you and you want to share their name(s), please do!  If you've had to settle for subpar treatment, marginalization, or discrimination in this journey, we are SO SORRY to hear this!  Loss is already so hard, and shouldn't be compounded by your doctor.  Educating providers through guidance will be done with the help of you and your families if you wish to do so.


To support you and your family when experiencing a pregnancy loss, Three Little Birds offers the following services to our families:
