About E.M.M.A.

E.M.M.A. Organization - Eternal Miracle Maternal Alleviation, founded in 2008, is the only organization in Romania that provides support to families who have experienced the trauma of losing a child and, especially, for those who have lost their baby before it was born.  

E.M.M.A. Organization is a non-profit nongovernmental organization, not affiliated with any religious or political organizations or entities, whose work is conducted on a voluntary basis and wants to implement an essential emotional support in the healing process. As the grieving mothers don't receive counselling in maternity or after they go home which can have serious consequences not only on the health of the mothers, but also on family and society! 

E.M.M.A. Organization, beside the other branches opened in the USA, Canada, Mexico, England and France, is partner of the MISS Foundation, founded by Joanne Cacciatore, mother of four children on Earth and of a little girl in Heaven.

Mother's regrets

> Roxana, 01. '09:Why, when I woke up from anaesthesia, even though I could not keep my eyes open, their first concern was" to sign, to write that I do not want the baby? This regret that I will have all my life ... it was the signature of a conviction ... I actually signed the pain of not knowing my baby, not holding and kissing him, for not burring him and say good bye” to him! I would have hurt a lot but now I would have been somehow reconciled. Now I'm living with the fault for that signature ...”  

> Mirela, 02. '08:"The biggest regret? I didn't make at least one picture! ... I have no memories!"  

>Gabriela, 02. '08: "Although I begged with tears in my eyes" Please, let me see him, "doctors and nurses felt it was better not to, that would be too traumatic to see my baby. How to heal if you were denied the right to see your own child? How can you handle the pain when you have no image associated with your baby! How? "

> Anonymous, 02. '08: "It didn't help me at all that I was not allowed to hold my baby in my arms for a moment - it's inhuman, nothing is more painful!"

> Anonymous, 04. '08: "I regret enormously that I didn't know, neither anyone else there, about the quick baptism ... Maybe I would have been more easily reconciled with her death, if I would have got to baptize her ... “ 

E.M.M.A. Organization’s activities (2010) 

We post here a summary of the E.M.M.A. Organization’s activities held in 2010, hoping that this summary will increase confidence in its actions and we’ll receive more and more support to achieve our most important objectives: to change the mentality and attitude of the society (& health professionals) regarding the trauma of losing a child and to reduce, as much as possible, infant mortality.
In 2010:
> The “Angels Parents Day” annual event was held in 18 cities.
> For the first time in Romania, EMMA organized “International Day of Remembrance of Children and Infants”, also known as “The Wave of Light”, held in 15 cities.
> Humanitarian action: “A gesture from the heart – EMMA’s holiday gift” was held in December across 11 cities.
> Support groups established and held in Bucharest, Iasi, Sibiu and Timisoara.
> The EMMA site was enriched with articles intended to support grieving families.
> EMMA Organization had many appearances in the media, in order to sensitize and inform the public. 
> EMMA Organization filed and argued at the Human Dignity Sub-Commission, a law project concerning the rights of children born  lifeless, and their parents.
> EMMA Organization provided support to parents who lost their babies in the fire at the Giulesti Maternity.
> For the first time in Romania, a bereaved family received support, from the very first moments in the hospital. Through EMMA, we were able to offer the parents the opportunity to create their own precious memories with their baby.
> The organization obtained its first significant sponsorship, courtesy of the Rotary Club. A generous donation of 10,500 Euro enabled EMMA to furnish three hospital rooms in the Bucur Maternity, as well as to purchase a fetal monitor and a vaginal probe for their ultrasound machine.

In 2010, EMMA Organization attended the following:
> National Forum of Patients Associations (5-7 March)
> National Conference of Romanian Patients (11-13 March)
> ONG Fest (7-9 May)
> Both Conferences organized by the Order of Nurses and Midwives in Romania (May 29 & 29 October)
> MISS Conference organized by MISS Foundation from USA-Phoenix, Arizona (2-4 September) 
2011 began with the start of the Medical Staff Awareness Campaign. The first informational seminar was held in Bucur Maternity Hospital and the response was positive and encouraging. Additional seminars will be held in other maternity hospitals throughout Romania in the coming year. 
The reactions were positive and encouraging, following that these seminars will be held in more maternity hospitals in Romania during this year.
We would like to thank once again to all those who have understood the importance of having, consolidating and promoting EMMA Organization and have supported the actions and steps forward taken during the past year.
