Threads of Remembrance
A family never enters into a pregnancy with the thought that they may experience a loss. The devastation when faced with a loss is unexplainable. To help families go through their grief process, a dedicated local group of volunteers have come together to sew baby gowns for all losses at both hospitals.
Proportioned specifically to fit preemie and micro-preemie infants. Threads of Remembrance gown patterns add a compassionate touch to any perinatal bereavement program. Threads of Remembrance patterns are unique in several ways:
- Proper Fit – We know that fetal development does not occur at a proportional rate. Unlike commercial patterns that cannot just be “scaled down” to size, we offer four styles designed especially to meet the proportional measurements of micro-preemie, preemie and term infants.
- Preservation of Infant Skin Integrity – the gown designs offer ease in dressing, with minimal manipulation which allows for better preservation of infant skin integrity.
- Garment Design – the easy-to-sew patterns are designed to minimize seam finishes with rough edges that irritate tender infant skin. Use of the design techniques also decreases sewing time.
