Mommy’s Time Out: A moms’ afternoon out to support parents experiencing baby loss

Sweet Grace Ministries Baskets

Self-care is very important for moms, but also something that often takes a back burner to the day to day challenges of family life.

Midstate newborn photographer and mom Mary Ramirez is hosting a “Mom’s Afternoon Out” to encourage that self-care while also supporting Sweet Grace Ministries – a  Chambersburg-based organization that supports families experiencing the loss of a baby.

Sweet Grace Ministries aims to provide comfort, hope, and empathy to families enduring miscarriage, ectopic, stillbirth, and neonatal death. It is partnered with nine PA hospitals and ships items across the U.S., has four PA support groups, offers photography, gowns, comfort baskets and more.

Sweet Grace Founder Katy Dortenzo lost her daughter, Cicely, in utero. She appeared on Good Day PA along with Mary Ramirez to showcase what Sweet Grace Ministries offers and to invite Midstate moms to the “Moms Afternoon Out.”
