Vision

Bring comfort to bereaved families
whose baby have gone before them.

Mission

Dress angel babies with dignity for their final journey by repurposing wedding gowns.

Provide bereaved parents avenues to be supported by those who have suffered similar losses.

Instil hope and provide services for bereaved families to rebuild their family

Angel babies that we have lost are forever close to our Hearts

– Felicia Tan

And this is how Angel Hearts came to be. We adopted the name Angel Hearts (AH) instead of Angel Gowns (AG) as Angel Hearts also encompasses the other services we provide to help our bereaved families cope with grief bringing comfort as we travel together along this long and difficult journey.

History of Angel Gowns (AG)

Angel Hearts has its beginnings from Angel Gowns which started off from a Facebook sewing hobby community and evolved into a platform to comfort bereaved women and send angel babies off with dignity.

How it all started

5 women met for the very first time in August 2016 to make a difference to help the bereaved. Within minimum knowledge, they sat and worked on prototypes, figuring out Asian babies sizing, shapes to work on and requirements of the hospitals. After which they launch the angel gowns patterns to sew during the first official meet up in October 2016.

The idea

The concept of angel gowns is adapted from similar organisations in the United States and Australia where they have robust charities upcycling preloved wedding gowns into angel apparel and bringing comfort to bereaved families.

Why wedding gown?

“The gowns were used for happy occasions. When you link that love and happiness of the person who wore it, we hope it brings an element of love and comfort to a sad event.”

– Andrea Toh

So from wedding gowns, we re-purpose
to Angel Gowns

From Angel Gowns, we extend the range to sewn wraps, bonnets and receiving blankets
as well as loom beanies and crocheted booties….
