After losing my son in 2007, I was on the lookout for somebody to help me understand what had happened and to guide me through the Journey. I found 1st Breath. Not only did they help guide me but helped me to become an advocate for other parents who had walked in my shoes.
Caring, understanding, and above all respectful, I highly reccomend 1st Breath as a place to turn to for grieving families.
I was able to volunteer and assist in making 1st Breath’s Compassion Care Kits that are provided to families in the hospital who have just learned that their baby will be, or has just been born still. The packages have had so much thought put into them. The resources they provide support families from the moment of diagnosis, to years down the road. 1st Breath does not think any newly bereaved family should leave the hospital with only a box of papers. They also believe it is important to honor these babies and help guide bereaved parents in learning how to be a parent to an angel. They work hard to give these precious babies who were born silent a voice to be heard.
