For this year’s HEALs to the Pavement for Pregnancy & Infant Loss 5K run/1 mile walk, my family and I will be participating and volunteering in honor of our two sweet babies goes too soon. In 2011, we lost our second pregnancy at just 6 weeks, and on May 10, 2012 our daughter Anaya was born sleeping at 21 weeks due to complications from Turners Syndrome.
As a Birth & Bereavement Doula, HEALing Embrace’s mission is very near and dear to my heart. Through donations, the nonprofit is able to support families through miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. The run/walk event is a day dedicated to honoring our babies and families and to support the families who will walk this path in the future. We are not in this alone.
