Emilia’s Wings is a registered Kansas City-based 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit established to raise awareness for pregnancy and infant loss. Emilia’s Wings was created in memory of Emilia Madeleine Rose Clough, who was born asleep on March 15, 2017, at North Kansas City Hospital. The Clough family created Emilia’s Wings as a way to not only keep Emilia’s memory alive but to reach out to other families who have experienced the loss of a child and to help normalize grief in the aftermath of these experiences.
Emilia’s Wings seeks to:
– Advocate for families suffering from all forms of pregnancy and infant loss.
– Raise funds to equip and enable area hospitals to improve the experiences and outcomes of pregnancy and infant loss patients.
– Recognize and support other organizations that make a positive impact in the community surrounding perinatal loss.
“Losing a child is a life-changing event. No matter the situation or length of gestation, a loss can be difficult to recover from physically, emotionally, and mentally. It is something no parent should ever have to experience and yet approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in a loss, making it much more common than many people believe.” -Through the Heart
We hope that the information found on this site, the discussion and reflections on our blog, and the sharing on our social media will help shine awareness on perinatal loss; while aiding others on their journey to healing.
