Pregnancy/parenting after loss...
For families walking the terrifying and exciting path towards continuing their family building journey, they are reminded that they are not alone and have support available to them through the following support:
Virtual support/content – Our virtual program is facilitated through our closed Facebook Support Group and is a space for parents to share their journey, resources that have helped them and keep abreast to our services and specialty offerings. We also have live Q&A's with our Doulas for questions about pregnancy after loss, birth planning options, childbirth education and more. We also host a virtual support group on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
In-person support available – We offer two in-person support options: 3rd Tuesdays at the Nest in Blackwood In the past year, we have supported a dozen families prepare and welcome the birth of their rainbow baby!
Postpartum support from Community Partners – We collaborate with several birth workers and postpartum support groups to support our families through loss. This includes Across the Spectrum Doula Services, KG Doula Care, Labor of Love Doula, Hey Mama Lactation & Perinatal Care, the Village South Jersey and more! These groups offer birthing classes, postpartum support at no cost to our families.
Product giveaways - We have samples of Three Little Birds products and donations of products from major retailers that we offer to families in our nest through regular giveaways or at our in-person events. This also includes copies of our Pregnancy After Loss Journal and our Rainbow Baby Door signs! Thanks to a donation from Wondertime, LLC and the South Jersey Mom & Baby Expo, we gifted six loss parents continuing their family building journey with dozens of gifts, certificates for service and products from local and national retailers/manufacturers!
A “rainbow baby” is a term used for a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison. We understand not everyone likes or utilizes this term however there are many who find comfort in this metaphor. We encourage families to find what works best for them and their family.
