Perinatal Loss
Resources and Products

Managing bereavement resources and products can be overwhelming. Our experience has found most printed resources provided to families are out of date and there are inconsistencies in support products and comfort items, either donated or purchased by facilities. We have developed several packages that can help alleviate these problems, while being cost effective.

Three Little Birds Resource Packages

Family resources - For nearly a decade, Three Little Birds has worked to maintain up-to-date printed resources to provide families when we meet them bedside and through our website. What we have found in working closely with hospitals is that resources with specific dates, contact information, etc are not being updated and often times are years out of date. To reduce the amount of wasted printed resources, Three Little Birds has developed a comprehensive resource package to ensure families will have access to updated and confirmed support and resources. This supports both patient and provider by alleviating the burden of chasing beneficial information. How it works:

  • Our basic resource package offers four sections of printed pages, sectioned to speak to the patient at specific parts of their journey.

  • These sectioned resources include 1. At the time of loss; 2. Infant Remembrance Portraiture/Bonding; 3. Burial, Cremation and Testing options and 4. Post-partum support. These documents offer providers tools to use when having difficult conversations with families regarding autopsy/post-mortem testing options, burial or cremation options and postpartum considerations.

  • The printed information will not change. The QR code provided takes the family to Three Little Birds website, where the resources and contact information are updated and verified routinely.

  • Our resource packages reinforce the access to Three Little Birds nest of support when the time is right for them. Note: Three Little Birds virtual support program is open to all. Our in-person support options are limited to the Philadelphia/South Jersey region.

  • Our resources are offered in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole and Portuguese. Additional language options available.

  • Digital/Print your own or pre-printed options available.

Benefits of our Family Resource Package

  • Reduces printed waste

  • Provides consistent resources without worrying what is updated

  • Supports provider in effective communication

  • Offers parents a space to connect with others through our virtual support program

  • Eliminates language barrier specific to your demographics

Pregnancy/Infant Loss Postpartum Appointment Support Cards - Three Little Birds has developed our Post-partum Appointment Support Cards to be used to communicate with busy OBGYN offices, doctors, nurses and other providers when a patient may need reasonable accommodation during their appointment. Having to attend postpartum appointments is very difficult after experiencing a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal loss or reoccurring infertility. This double sided card (printed on premium card stock) includes a space for the patient to include their baby's name on the front and fill out the answers to common questions you may be repeatedly asked by staff. This helps the clinician understand that you are grieving and it is not appropriate to ask and re-ask common questions during intake or the passing of care from one provider to another. These cards allow parents to communicate important information discreetly, including:

  • Specifics about their loss experience

  • Date of their last menstrual period

  • Triggers like ultrasounds, touching of stomach or certain providers

  • Option to wait in a separate waiting area away from other pregnant parents

  • Requests for specific conversations regarding experience, current care or continuing their family building journey.

  • Three Little Birds also offers a similar option for families who are pregnant after loss and managing considerable anxiety.

There are two options for purchase: 100 Post-partum Appointment Cards for $60 including shipping or 200 Cards (100 Post-partum/100 Pregnancy After Loss) for $105 including shipping.

Recognition of Life Certificates - Due to many governmental and religious laws, families experiencing miscarriage or stillbirth are not usually given an official document for their birth or death. To remedy this, we have developed our Recognition of Life Certificates for families to personalize and take home. Many families will use ink pads to add their baby's foot or hand prints and frame as a keepsake in their home.

We offer a digital/print on demand option ($_____) or pre-printed options ($____ including shipping).

Journal-Cover.jpg

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Journal - Three Little Birds authored the perinatal loss journal, A Nest for My Heart, as a safe place for parents to calm their heart and mind in the postpartum period when navigating the journey of grief and loss. While there is no rule book to grief, and the experience is personal to each person, even those grieving the same loss, this journal has been developed as a guide to find time for self-care, reflection and connecting with their baby.  Users can write out thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams and disappointments freely. Most importantly, it can become a place for you to find hope and inspiration to create a legacy for your baby that can help the next family enduring the heartbreak of loss. Parents can acknowledge their feelings by finding corresponding prompts/affirmations through a “Heal Your Heart” exercise, meditation and guidance on how to work through those emotions. Part journal, part baby book, this publication can also serve as a special keepsake for families. $600 for 25 journals + shipping
