|About||The EPLA is a start-up non-profit seeking to help bear the burden of grief for women & families who have experienced the heartache of miscarriage.|
After suffering two miscarriages, founder Emily Carrington started working to find a way to support families by covering the medical costs associated with pregnancy loss. To brainstorm this idea a group of women met to examine the current needs and services. From this meeting came the idea for a networking organization that would not only provide financial support but also help to support existing care and contribute to the burgeoning public conversation about pregnancy loss.
The EPLA seeks to meet these needs by:
1) Creating an association of professionals who serve women and families who have experienced early pregnancy loss. Through networking, support, education, and a spirit of unity, medical, ministerial, non-profit, social work, and counseling professionals will be better equipped to serve this community.
2) Increasing awareness through an online presence and providing educational materials in hospitals, doctor's offices, and libraries.
3) Building an endowment to provide financial support for related medical and funeral expenses available to all women and families who have experienced early pregnancy loss.
Please join us as we pray that one day no woman or family ever suffer the isolating pain of miscarriage alone.
