Resources

Local Counselors

Maya Angelou said that "there is no greater agony that bearing an untold story inside you". 

No Footprint Too Small strongly supports the use of counseling during your grief journey. Are you are a mother looking for individual therapy to manage feelings of anxiety during a subsequent pregnancy? Maybe you are a couple who have been struggling to communicate ever since you lost your baby. Perhaps you are parents who would like to learn more about how to effectively support your grieving children after they've experienced the death of their baby sibling. No matter your situation, we can help get you connected to support that will get you on a path towards hope and healing.

If you need any help navigating these resources, please don't hesitate to contact us for guidance and support.

Support Groups

  • We are so excited to announce that we are now hosting monthly drop-in support groups for individuals impacted by pregnancy and infant loss.

    These groups are free and open to the public. You can come as often or as little as you need. You can share your story or you can simply listen to the stories of others.

    No matter where you are at in your grief journey, we are just honored to walk alongside you!

Infertility Resources

The purpose of Friends in Fertility is to provide a safe and supportive environment for women experiencing challenges related to fertility. Friends in Fertility aims to provide support for friends walking through fertility challenges, educate and empower friends to take steps toward physical and emotional healing, and connect them with professional resources, as well as other friends in fertility.

Natural Family Planning

20-40% of couples with infertility are able to achieve pregnancy (within a year) just by charting with the Creighton model of Natural Family Planning, and up to 80% are able to get pregnant by using Creighton combined with some kind of medical treatment (which can be anything as simple as supplementing progesterone correctly timed with the cycle, up to and including surgery or ovulation inducing drugs).

Learn more about Natural Family Planning, the Creighton model, and the Family Life Office here.

Feminine Genius is another local resource for Natural Family Planning and uses the Marquette Model.

Wedding Dress Donation for Burial Gowns

Some women decide to generously donate their wedding dress to be used to create burial gowns for babies who have died during pregnancy or after birth. Although No Footprint Too Small has reached our capacity for wedding dress donations, there is an organization located in Bellevue who accepts donations.
