Amy's Angels - Helping families.  Honoring lives.

Each year, over half a million dreams are shattered.  Out of 3.3 million born alive, some 30,000 die during the first 28 days.  Another 39,000 babies are still born.  Miscarriage occurs in fifteen to twenty percent of pregnancies, while ectopic pregnancy occurs in one percent.

 

It is estimated that approximately 6,000 babies are at risk each year in the United States due to TTTS. 

TTTS (Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome) is a condition that happens in 5% - 15% of multiple identical pregnancies. It only happens in identical twins or a higher multiple pregnancy with identical twins. It can happen anytime during an affected pregnancy or a higher multiple pregnancy. Identical twins are not inherited. The identical twinning process occurs when one embryo splits to create two babies.

Amy's Angels is a developing Texas non-profit, non-denominational, volunteer based organization providing outreach and support to individuals and families who experience pregnancy and infant loss from conception to one year of age.  Established in October, 2006, Amy's Angels promotes awareness of the issues faced by families who experience pregnancy and infant loss as well as provide resources to aid in positive grief resolution.

Our program hands out  bereavement boxes filled with items such as a teddy bear, blanket, music selection appropriate for the funeral, burial gown and other keepsakes for the family.  These items are distributed to hospitals that have bereavement programs for those who experience pregnancy and infant loss.
