a miscarriage story : comfort kits for those going through a miscarriage

When researching about miscarriages, I found the most wonderful, thoughtful organization, Through the Heart, where you can order a Comfort Kit for a friend who has experienced a miscarriage. Filled with treats, small things that are comforting, and resources, these are helpful tokens you can send a friend to let her know you are thinking of her, that she's not alone, and that it's good to take care of herself during this difficult time.

The best part- these are FREE for people to request.

You can donate to this organization, and I really hope you will. It sounds like they are doing GREAT work! $15 for one or $25 for two kits.

From the Web site:
"Through the Heart provides Comfort Kits free of charge to individuals or couples who have recently suffered a pregnancy loss. Each kit comes full of items to pamper you including personal care items, sweet and savory snacks, and a Redbox movie rental code. Information about our organization and a handwritten note from our president are also included to add a personal touch. While nothing can take away the pain of a loss, it is our hope that this kit will provide some distraction during a difficult time and provide resources to begin healing.
Since the program began in November 2013, we have mailed more than 500 kits to grieving parents across the country!"

    I had a miscarriage in 2013. We’d only been trying to get pregnant for a couple of months, and when I got that first positive pregnancy test, it felt a little bit like a whoops! Well, okay. One evening, I came home from a book reading and was bleeding. I quickly turned to all my pregnancy books, and to the internet, all of which told me that a little bleeding could be normal and fine, but the longer it went on, and the more pain I was in, what was happening became clear. The bleeding wasn’t stopping, and neither was the pain. Even though it was obvious enough what was going on, I refused to take any pain medication. Because you’re not supposed to take blood thinners when you’re pregnant. That was how I lost my first pregnancy. And in two others in the same year I had to look for solution, because our family Doctor could not help, he has given us a lot of prescription but non worked, I had to look for solution on line and saw the contact of Dr Steve I contacted him through the mail and made purchase for his product which is a permanent solution to Miscarriage. Now am having two kids and I promise to tell the whole world about him if he helps me out. You can contact him for solution on for a good solution to miscarriage.
