Aubree Ann Tucker was stillborn to her mother, Ashly in October 2017. Since then, Ashly has joined Three Little Birds' support groups and events to find validation, support and healing. Recently, Aubree's mom completed Three Little Birds' Perinatal Bereavement Training Program for Advocates so that she can be the support person to another family walking the journey of pregnancy and infant loss. She was named Three Little Bird's Certified Bereavement Doula of the Year for all of her hard work, dedication and commitment to supporting the organization's goals and needs.
As a way to parent her daughter and support others creating their "new normal" in the aftermath of pregnancy and infant loss, Ashly is launching her legacy project, Aubree's Adventures! The goal of Aubree's Adventures is to provide a safe space for loss parents to gather and socialize after loss.
"I remember trying to reintegrate myself into my old life and social circles after losing Aubree and found it very difficult and sometimes uncomfortable for me to relate or connect with others. After finding Three Little Birds and benefiting from their services, and then becoming a part of the nest, I felt a calling in my heart to fill this void in other's healing journey. Despite our differences and varied experiences, there is a magical kinship among loss parents. Strangers enter the room and leave as friends, sharing hugs and contact information. I want to create a safe space for parents with similar journeys to gather and feel...normal.", says Ashly. "It is also a way for myself to parent her and hold space for her in my life.
Please join us at the Healing Nest (side office at Discover Chiropractic - 69 S. Black Horse Pike, Blackwood, NJ) on Friday, November 11, 2022 at 6 PM. To honor the holiday season, attendees will create a simple dinner plate to be included in our upcoming holiday season where we can honor them and create new traditions. Please RSVP here!
Also at our event, we will be gauging interest in the types of events we are planning for 2023! Should we go axe throwing? Kickboxing? Goat yoga? We are willing to do anything of interest to others in the nest! No idea is too big, small or off the wall!
