In October 2014, my first baby, Joel, was sadly born sleeping on what should have been his due date. Although it was a horrific time, every member of staff at the Chesterfield Birthing Unit gave outstanding care to me, Joel, my partner and both of our families.
We were given a memory box, baby blankets and teddy bears. They also provided a designated furnished family room which we were able to stay in for as many days as we felt we needed to.
All of these things, including every item in the family room, had been donated and funded for by families who had also suffered a still birth.
After receiving such compassion and being so thankful for the "home comforts" provided to us at this time we would like to help other families who have to face this tragedy.
We are hoping to raise some money to back into the pot as the NHS budget just doesnt stretch that far. Simple things such as photos taken on the ward and matching "mummy and baby" teddy bears may not seem much but they are all we have of our Joel.
Hopefully with the money raised we can give other families these sacred precious memories of their babies who were born with their angel wings.
Thank you for your time, money and love x
