Thanks to all who came out to our second annual family walk to commemorate Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day on October 13, 2018. We are so glad to continue this conversation to reduce the stigma and loneliness surrounding pregnancy and infant loss. We hope relationships were formed and support was found through the resources and stories shared.
“ I had goosebumps but didn’t feel cold. I felt numb. The baby kicks in my belly. Still alive. What does it mean to be alive? I question this as I rub my belly. I speak out loud and reassure the being inside me that all will be okay. After all, that’s what mother’s do for their children…right? Tears rolled down my cheeks. The earth cried for me that month and I with it. “
Our little angle is two months old! I can't believe it has been two months since I faced my fears about an un-medicated birth, and brought this wonderful blessing into the world! I want to tell my birth story to help any woman who has been through anything similar, to let you know you too can take back your power! And to shed light on what a home birth is, how empowering it can be and what a fantastically, amazing experience it is!
We celebrated our 3rd birthday a few weeks ago and it was a great milestone to celebrate! We are so proud of the work we've done for the past three years and hope to continue to grow our programs and community.
