We recently expanded to provide Butterfly Baskets and Butterfly Bags to several hospitals in the Greater Philadelphia area. Since our founding in July 2020, we have provided over 450 comfort packages to women and families experiencing pregnancy loss or infant loss. We currently serve 12 hospitals/OB-GYN offices and are working on plans for continued expansion of support. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request Butterfly Baskets at your hospital or healthcare organization. We currently serve the Greater Philadelphia area, but hope to expand to other areas in the near future!
