Susan Wade, RN, Maternity and Newborn Care Center at Hunterdon Medical Center, left, with Lauren Welch, and her daughter, Ava Welch.

High Bridge resident, Lauren Welch, wanted to do something special for mothers who have had a pregnancy loss after she experienced a loss in June 2022 and February 2023.  In memory of her babies, Alanna and Hudson, Welch collected donations and assembled baskets that included items of comfort such as a blanket, tissues, a journal, a pregnancy loss book, a list of supportive resources, a door dash gift card and a personal note from Welch. The blankets included in the baskets were donated by the Hunterdon County Quilters Guild. The baskets will be given to bereaved mothers at Hunterdon Medical Center.
