A BIT ABOUT US
Being a Labor and Delivery nurse I have seen first hand the difference support and a comfort basket can make, it gives the caregiver and parents a deeper connection. The parents feel comfort in knowing that we as caregivers are empathetic and understand the loss of an infant is not an easy. Most caregivers wish that they could do more, the comfort baskets help us go that extra mile. Comfort Baskets help open doors for communication between parents and caregiver. Open communication helps the parents begin to heal, by letting the parents express their emotions and voice their concerns. The healing process is a very long one, one with no end for most parents. My mother lost two children over 37 years ago, back then infant loss was not talked about , and was actually hushed. I have seen my mother suffer in silence for many years, and I think to myself maybe it would have been different for her if there was open communication and support at the moment she was going through her loss. As you can see some parents turn to drug and alcohol abuse, even worse some parents have committed suicide. Early interventions, communication and acceptance can help parents begin to heal. Providing our parents with resources to help them continue to heal during this time is imperative. Helping one parent realize they are not alone and people do care could literally save their family and maybe their life. We as caregivers are often the only people parents want to talk to because they know we care, after all that is why we are caregivers.
