Over the last decade the African American Breastfeeding Network Inc. (AABN) has celebrated the beauty of birth and breastfeeding with over 1,000 families. Unfortunately, we have also heard the many voices of despair from families who have loss infants.
AABN, along with our partners—Greater Milwaukee Foundation and Sojourner Family Peace Center— we have made a commitment to end suffering in silence due to infant loss. Healing Waters will support families who have experienced infant loss of a pregnancy at any stage, or death of a baby, up to 12 months of age.
The pain families experience is insurmountable, traumatizing, and unbearable. Our trained facilitators and volunteers welcome families to join with others who share in grief. Healing Waters is a safe space to help mothers and their loved ones begin and/or continue their healing journey.
