- Hazel Flint-Jones
- Wisconsin Ambassador
Hazel Flint-Jones is a mother of two amazing boys. One who is 21 and the other, her Angel, who was stillborn at 21 weeks. In memory of her son, she started an organization called Mattie’s Memory in October of 2012 to provide support for local area hospitals. Mattie’s Memory has spread nationwide, with some international interest as well.
Hazel is a trained bereavement doula and midwife and has helped local chapters of different organizations that help families through difficult times during pregnancy and childbirth .
She has provided many newspaper and TV interviews on the topic of stillbirth and the work she does. Hazel has been recognized by former Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and also received a citation of commendation from State Sen. LaTonya Johnson. Mattie’s Memory was also named a finalist in the best non-profit/Human Services Organization in the Best of Milwaukee awards for 2021.
The reason Hazel has chosen to become a Count the Kicks Ambassador is because Wisconsin has an extremely high stillbirth rate that needs to be addressed. To save the lives of as many babies as possible and not have a parent live through the pain Hazel knows only too well is of high importance. Saving babies starts with counting kicks.Back to Ambassadors
