If you live in our service region and are walking the journey of pregnancy and infant loss and seeking validation, connection, and support, we invite you to become a member of our nest! Registration is free (click here!) Read about the perks of our membership below!
In the past two years, our nest of perinatal loss families has grown tremendously! Since the opening of our office/meeting space, The Healing Nest in Blackwood, NJ, we have been able to elevate our service offerings. Beginning in 2023, we are asking that each loss parent/family register as a member of our nest. There is no cost to join, however, residency restrictions apply. This will ensure our communications are received by those who are not on social media but still want access to the virtual content, as well as pre-register for events. Registration will help us better plan for our support group needs (capacity, expenses, etc) and aid in the organization of our signature events. Membership to our Nest also ensures you will be given the opportunity to pre-register for some of our most popular events! Below is an overview of what is included in the membership program with Three Little Birds:
Virtual content – Our virtual program is facilitated through our closed Facebook Support Groups (Mama Bird Healing (for moms), Papa Bird Healing (for dads), the Hope Nest (for infertility and loss support), and our Pregnancy/Parenting After Loss Mentorship Group. This includes topical videos and discussions and exclusive content.
Monthly newsletter - If you're not on social media, you won't miss a thing with the monthly newsletter! We will provide you with our virtual and in-person support schedule at the Healing Nest, as well as access to RSVP links to our signature events (with material fees and expenses listed), plus giveaways and more!
New support group offerings - We have launched a new specialty support group option on the 3rd Monday of each month to complement our standing 2nd Monday general grief group. Monthly, we will host groups to support family members/friends through loss, support for single-loss parents, infertility/reoccurring miscarriage, and more!
Access to our Pregnancy After Loss Mentorship Program - When it is time for you to continue your family-building journey, we are here for you. The Healing Nest is open weekly on Tuesdays for our parents pregnant after loss (confirmed 8+ weeks). We have a virtual group and a support package available for purchase, along with access to birth doulas/postpartum specialists and personalized birthing classes.
Signature Support Events– Members will have priority access to register for our signature events. These events include our popular Bereaved Mother’s Day Butterfly Release, Father’s Day Support Event, Wave of Light, and Rage Room! Members will be responsible for material fees or event costs.
Legacy project program – Three Little Birds will gift $100 towards the launch of a qualifying legacy project that helps support the mission of Three Little Birds either through an event or an ongoing project! No cash value.
* The above information will be emailed monthly to registered members as well as posted in our closed Facebook Group.
What is a material or event fee? Our goal is to provide our support groups/activities and events for free or with little cost. Many of our events involving crafts or personalized items require materials to facilitate. Additionally, many of our off-site event locations charge us nominal fees per person. When feasible, Three Little Birds will try to cover a portion of these expenses. Exact attendance costs will be provided to you upon registration. Thank you for understanding.
Please note: At this time, our capacity to support our mission is for families in the Philadelphia/South Jersey metro region only. We are unable to accommodate families outside the following areas: Southern NJ (Atlantic, Burlington, Cape May, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester & Salem Counties), the City of Philadelphia, and PA (Montgomery, Bucks, and Delaware Counties).
Why residency restrictions? - We are 100% volunteer-run and donation/grant based. Over the past two years, we have tripled the number of families we are serving, and even our office in Blackwood, NJ, can only host a small capacity of people per event. For our off-site events, we often have to pay per head and because of this, we are truly limited to maintaining our attendance to families in our region who actively participate in groups, legacy projects, and volunteer. Additionally, guidelines set by grantors require us to strictly adhere to our mission and which is serving families in the service region (Southern NJ/Philadelphia and the PA metro area).
