Angel Heartbeat Bear Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

If you are following us on Facebook, you’ll know that we’re offering a giveaway!  Our objective with having a Facebook page is to lead families directly here, to stillbirthday, not the other way around, but if you’re already on Facebook, I invite you to find the stillbirthday page.  By the way, stillbirthday is also on Twitter.

While we provide support during the actual, physical birth of babies born in any trimester, and we provide support at any time afterward, including bereavement support, it is also important to provide trusted information regarding prevention of infant loss, and we work to lead you to the resources that provide the most trustworthy information regarding prevention, while also having the sensitivity to honor the feelings of blame and guilt that families who’ve already endured loss may feel as they learn about prevention information.

One such organization is Cora’s Story, who shares information regarding congenital heart defects and prevention, including pulse oximetry testing for newborns, after the first 24 hours after birth.

To help you remember “pulse oximetry at +24 hours”, once we reached 2,500 “likes” at our Facebook page, we decided to run a giveaway of an Angel Heartbeat Bear.  The winner can use this for:

  • her own pregnancy, particularly if she’s carrying to term a baby with a fatal diagnosis
  • after her baby has been born, to record special words of love
  • as a gift for someone else

To enter in the giveaway:

  • If you are already on Facebook, “tag” the stillbirthday page and the Cora’s Story page together with a comment to invite others to like our page.
  • If you are not already on Facebook, simply leave a comment below, stating that you are interested in winning.

One person will be selected as the winner on March 17.

The person selected was Becky, who left a comment below.  Congratulations Becky!

    I had a m/c at 12 wks Oct 13th, 2003.. I finally conceived again in April 2005 and delivered a boy on Jan 10, 2006. Not a day goes by I don’t think of my angel baby I named Rebecca but didn’t tell my older kids her name. I place an ornament on my tree for the yr of her loss 2003 and the actual yr of birth April 2004. My son and daughter in law conceived a little girl who was due April 14th 2007 (born April 5th) and said they were naming her Rebecca Dawn (Dawn is my middle name). I said oh… and they were why oh and I told them my angel baby was Rebecca and they asked if I was k with her name and I said def so my granddaughter has my angel babies name..

  15. Laura, midwife, that’s fantastic. I have a friend who had a stillbirth at home. She had decided to go UC although her midwife was called later due to hemorrhaging. I wish that I could have been able to do it at home as well (I required a cesarean due to the situation.)

  16. For those of you waiting a rainbow baby, after years of waiting we had a beautiful little boy who brings us much joy. He’s now 6 months! I’m also a doula and I believe that my experience has brought more depth and understanding to my work. GL to whoever wins the bear, it’s lovely!
