FAITHS WINGS PRIVATE GROUPS
When a parent loses a baby, often times they do not know where to start or do not realize that there is support out there. We feel like it is extremely important for all parents of loss to have as many resources as possible available to them. Below are some of the organizations we have personally worked with one-on-one.
Stillbirthday Global Network is an internationally trusted benevolent organization whose philanthropic mission is simply to doula: to nurture sources of perinatal bereavement, strengthen skills of healthcare professionals and increase healthy engagement of perinatal related needs among communities. Stillbirthday is founded on the non-discriminatory mandate to love, to the best of our ability, in all situations. Members of the stillbirthday community are diverse and autonomous, each committed to exemplifying the advancement of loving service which our Principles of Service frames. Stillbirthday is founded as an auspice of Christian Childbirth Services LLC.
