THE GROUP DONATES OVER $50,000 TO NO FOOT TOO SMALL BIRTHING + BEREAVEMENT SUITE AT GENESIS EAST MEDICAL CENTER

[Davenport, Iowa, December 13, 2019] The Group - Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists, P.C. has been an established practice caring for the community for over 40 years. On Friday, December 13th, The Group physicians and team presented No Foot Too Small (NFTS) with a check for $50,000 to be used for the new Birthing + Bereavement Suite at Genesis East Medical Center, Davenport, IA. The suite will be designed to serve and comfort families experiencing miscarriage, stillbirth, fetal and infant loss. It will include a labor and delivery room, as well as a waiting area for family and friends. This donation is in addition to ‘Group’ team fundraising initiatives totaling $3,733. These initiatives included an internal Family Fun Night Fundraiser, Wine Pull, and ‘It Takes a Village’ T-shirt Fundraiser. This brings The Group total contribution to date to $53,733.
 
Imagine your 20-week ultrasound and learning there is no heartbeat. Where would you want to deliver? Imagine delivering your baby - knowing (s)he will only live a few hours - would you want to be somewhere quiet - somewhere private - to soak up those precious + fleeting moments before your child takes his/her last breath?
 
Birthing + Bereavement Suites don't currently exist in the United States - although they are common place in other parts of the world. We are working to change that. This initiative is being led by Dr. Lyndsey Day of The Group - Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists, P.C. and her husband Kyle Day, Jess & Jenny Buntemeyer, and Dana and Dr. Mark Wilkinson. They, along with NFTS and Genesis are working towards a place where families experiencing infant loss are offered options, privacy, and peace.
