Small Batch Production: Limited Edition

As a tribute to Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness efforts, we are over the moon to introduce our Charlotte Forever Blanket for wee little babes. These tiny heirloom blankets are painstakingly hand knit by a mom of two in Sevierville, TN. Hearts will melt when they see precious names, birth dates, and messages printed on our personalized tags. Approximate size: 32"x24". Choose from cream colored yarn with a blushy pink or a grey heart in the middle of the blanket. Each blanket will vary in appearance making them truly heirloom worthy. For more about our personalized message tags included with each purchase, visit this pageBeauty takes care: Machine wash cold on gentle. Lay Flat to Dry or Dry on Low Heat. Softer with each wash. Owner tested and approved. The breathability of the knit construction is a favorite element of their design.

Baby Charlotte's story and life has touched so many as her mother has worked to raise awareness for infant loss since her passing at birth in 2014. As a news anchor in New Jersey, Marisa has used her voice to help break the silence that often comes with the loss of a child or miscarriage. Unfortunately, a large percentage of women will experience loss and yet, as a society, we have still not come to terms with how to support these mothers and their families through some of the hardest of days. When you purchase a Charlotte Forever Blanket and see those sweet hearts wrapped around a baby you love, may they be a reminder that someone needs your prayers and light through a time of great darkness. May it also be a reminder to let a grieving mother say her child's name or talk about them. Don't be afraid to say their son or daughter's name. It may be music to their ears. So many mothers fear that you might forget about the one they love and miss so dearly, even many years later.

All profits from the sale of this blanket will go towards the purchase of an innovative Cuddle Cot through the U.S. Cuddle Cot Campaign Initiative. Our hope is to place a cooling unit for stillborn babies in one of the nation's top hospitals for labor and delivery here in Atlanta. Cuddle Cots allow families more time with their child to hold, love on, introduce to family members, and take photos with before funeral arrangements must be made. These simple units give parents the gift of time especially when a death is sudden and unexpected.

Raising Awareness Year Round

Swell Forever is committed to raising awareness and lending a voice to the families who have experienced the worst of heartbreaks, that of losing a child or going through the pain of pregnancy loss. In addition to hosting a private support group for moms and grandmothers on Facebook called Swell Mamas: Life After Loss, we have been supporting Project Leo William & with their Boxes of Sunshine in honor of baby Leo who passed away at 2 months of age in 2014. You can help support this effort year round with the purchase of our Forever Bird in Sunshine yellow by clicking here. Each year we have also put a blog series together in honor or October's Pregnancy and Infant Awareness Month. Here are links to previous posts:
