Who We Are

"There is no grief like the grief that does not speak." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Days of Plenty Foundation was formed to provide comfort and support to women who have experienced a perinatal loss. We offer peer-to-peer support in your time of need.  We are focused upon one simple goal, to lift the veil of silence for women experiencing this type of loss; to hold your hand and walk with you. 

You are not alone. 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Days of Plenty Foundation is to provide advocacy and support for families experiencing perinatal loss.  The Days of Plenty Foundation provides support primarily through committed volunteers offering peer counseling, and advocacy through outreach to the medical community with best practices for providing services to these families.

 How We Can Help

Days of Plenty Companioning Care Team:  Available for parents during their hospital stay, before or after delivery.  The team is comprised of volunteers trained to provide support, resources, and education to parents and their families at the time surrounding a perinatal loss.  Support can be before, during or after release from the hospital, as long as support is needed.

Monthly Loss Web Group: Available to any person affected by perinatal loss. Contact us for further information.

Days of Plenty Perinatal Hospice Program:  Perinatal hospice and palliative care is an innovative and compassionate model of support that can be offered to parents who find out during pregnancy that their baby has a fatal condition.

Ella Patrice Metzger came into the world stillborn on June 27th, 2009.  After an earlier pregnancy loss in 2008, we were thrilled to be expecting again.  After an uneventful pregnancy, a normal CVS test done at the 10th week and regular heartbeat check appointments, we were stunned to learn at our routine 20 week appointment that our Ella was no longer with us. After 60 hours of labor, Ella arrived at 7:05 pm and was 9 ounces and 9 inches long.  We spent several hours with her and celebrated her with the hospital chaplain at a special naming ceremony in her honor.
