Another reason to love The March of Dimes

I was flipping back through some of my old posts and discovered this comment on my first post about the miscarriage. It's from MoDLin, a contributor for The March of Dimes's New Moms Need blog:
"The March of Dimes has created a Bereavement Kit for families who have suffered a loss. It contains fact sheets on reasons for loss and booklets that deal with the issues From Hurt to Healing; What Do You Say?; When You're Ready to Try Again; and Resources. You can read about it at this link: http://www.marchofdimes.com/pnhec/572.asp. If you would like to have one of these helpful and free kits, please send an email requesting it to the following address: bkit@marchofdimes.com.* We will gladly put one in the mail for you."
How cool is that?! I had no idea those kits were available. Obviously it's too late in the process for me, but I hope this is of some use to someone else - a reader going through a miscarriage, or maybe something you could give to a close friend to help them through their loss.

*There is also an online form here.

  1. I absolutely love the March of Dimes and will be donating to them a lot in the future. I think they're going to become my charity of choice from now on. They do so many wonderful things. In the past month I've had friends affected by premature birth (one is thriving, one was tragically lost) and it just never occured to me until then how common preemie birth is and how it can affect ANYONE! Plus all of their wonderful resources. Yes, I love March of Dimes! And it's great to know these things are out there. I hope I never, ever have to utilize their services, but it's good to know they are there.
