8 November 2012

How will you rate?  Please have a heart and help.

Dear Marketplace,

I just wanted to encourage your company to think about baby registries and how you can better help parents.

Let me start by saying I had a registry with you for my daughter.  She was due to arrive 8.31.2012, and where she was born, she was still born and had died just moments before we were to welcome her.

I am sure you are wondering why I write to you.  Well, I have heard that if you have a registry with a store that specifies your due date, that information is shared, sold or something.  I don't know what you do, but I know that you are the only place that I registered and I have been getting all kinds of formula from companies as well as bottles, coupons etc.  I plan to also work with the Medical world on this, but wanted to start with you to see if there is something that you can do to help mitigate this.  I was fine when receiving it, but not all moms will be okay.  It is hard to lose your child and then get those kind of reminders that seem to taunt you.

I would love to work with your company somehow to figure out ways to really reach out to those that have lost a baby and instead of them receiving stuff for baby, maybe they could receive information about candles, custom necklaces, etc to remember their baby by.

please get back with me or have someone get with me that I could talk to about how we can really make a difference to those that have lost a baby.

If you want to see how you can impact people and how it could affect your bottom line (I know you are a company and will probably not contact me if you can't see the impact to you) please reach out to me and let me work with you.  There are more than 600,000 parents impacted a year in just the US alone that have lost a child due to stillbirth, miscarriage and early infant loss.  That is a lot of people that could be frequenting your store or that could choose to steer clear because you seem callous.

Let me help you...I am a mom that wants to make a difference for the sake of my precious girl I lost.

For the love of my Madilyne and my Jordan.
