Blood Drive for Placenta Accreta Awareness
Oct

4:00pm 4:00pm

Blood Drive for Placenta Accreta Awareness

As part of our month long observance of Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness Month we invite you to help save lives by donating blood. 

Placenta Accreta is an obstetric complication that involves the deep attachment of the placenta into the uterine wall. However the placenta does not penetrate the uterine muscle. More severe cases include placenta percreta and increta which do involve the uterine muscle and can carry greater risks for mothers. The primary risk to the mother is hemorrhaging during attempts to remove the placenta postpartum. In Accreta cases the placenta has difficulty detaching from the uterine wall. Severe hemorrhaging can lead to many complications and can become quickly life threatening. Placental issues are a leading cause of 2nd trimester losses. Hemorrhage is the #1 cause of maternal deaths. 

With your blood donation, you will be helping to save lives in our local area.

One Blood is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing blood and components to all 38 hospitals and 70 ambulatory facilities in the tri-county area. They need approximately 1000 donations every day to keep up our local supplies for and on average they only have a 2-3 day supply locally. Your donation will be used within 72 hours to save patient lives. 

All donors will receive a Free T-Shirt, your blood type and a mini-wellness check- up including a Cholesterol screening, blood pressure, pulse and iron check.

Our other events for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month can be found here:

New Moms Group

This meetup is for caretakers and their little ones from about birth into toddlerhood. It meets the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.

This is an informal group that will involve listening to each other and sharing challenges and celebrations. The postpartum period can be stressful and lonely. By coming together in community on a regular basis we can help to make the transition of welcoming a new baby an easier one by finding support and strength through others in friendship.

Yin Yoga with Blair

Yin Yoga with Blair

Adult and mature teens only. All flexibility and fitness levels are welcome! There are fewer poses (asanas) per class- each pose is held anywhere from 1-15 minutes (with props as needed). These poses target the deep connective (“Yin”) tissues in the body, such as ligaments, bones, fascia and joints of the body that are typically not accessed as much during a more active (“Yang”) practice. This class is a wonderful compliment if you already have an established muscular (“Yang”) practice. It is also great if you like a quiet class where you can slow down and surrender. The class is healing, relaxing and takes into account the whole person- body, mind and spirit. Prior yoga and/or meditation experience is not required.

Please bring a yoga Mat- all other props will be provided. :) 

Also- this class will be held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (FB Events will always be created though!). 

$10 per class
Two Payment Methods: 
1. Cash
2. Paypal- select "Friends and Family" to:
communityrootscollectivetampa@gmail.com.
