The Family Birth Centers at Chandler Regional is looking for donations for its Teddy Bear Drive to benefit patients who have suffered from the loss of a pregnancy or newborn baby. Donated teddy bears should be brand new with tags, stand approximately 18 inches tall, be soft and cuddly, and should not have music boxes or make sounds.

The Perinatal Infant Bereavement Program helps families cope during this heartbreaking time. In addition to emotional and spiritual support, grieving parents are given keepsakes for their baby and a teddy bear. The purpose of the teddy bear is to give the bereaved mother something to hold onto so she doesn’t leave the hospital with empty arms.

A dropbox will be set up in the lobby at Chandler Regional Medical Center, 1955 W. Frye Road. To learn more, visit ChandlerRegional.org.
