In Home Births
The number of families choosing free-standing birth centers increased 83% over the previous decade. Birth centers have excellent outcomes for babies and mothers.
Some Families Need Extra Support
Women with a high risk of postpartum depression, cesarean, or medical issues, single parents, and parents of twins can benefit from extra support.
Pregnancy and birth are not always a time of joy for families. For some, it is a time of bereavement and loss. For these families, paid maternal leave may not be available and funeral and burial services may be out of reach. Nurture Birth Cooperative helps support grieving families with lost wages, funeral expenses, and by organizing and arranging services to honor these angel babies.
While some working parents may qualify for paid time off or paid sick leave after a miscarriage or stillbirth, many need extra support for lost wages after the loss of a baby.
The cost of a funeral, burial, or cremation for an infant can be overwhelming for many families. And the task of organizing these services can feel equally heartbreaking.
