BLAW 2018

Wow what a whirlwind week of emotions it has been. It has been amazing to see so many people raising awareness as much as they possibly can, especially when some of those people are ones who have supported me and welcomed me talking about Jason. This week there has been so much discussion around baby… Continue reading BLAW 2018

My Journey To Elsie with an Incompetent Cervix

I am so incredibly honoured to share a post written by a wonderful Mummy to her two children. Lauren is one of the Mummy's I found over on IG who unfortunately is part of our baby loss community. Lauren reached out to me as she felt that sharing her story may help others who might find themselves in the same situation she did. 

October is Elsie's month and to start off her celebrations here is her story ❤

Thank You NHS

This year the NHS turns 70. For anyone not in the UK the NHS is our free healthcare service and is such a lifeline to so many people. I must admit I am quite a careful person so have never had to use A&E or the hospital as a child. Of cause we visited the… Continue reading Thank You NHS

Say Their Name

Usually when someone dies their memory lives on in stories, in their family and their friends memories. Their name is still spoken, maybe less than before but it is socially acceptable to talk about them because they lived. So why is it still socially unacceptable to speak the names of babies/children who have died? Society… Continue reading Say Their Name

Saying Goodbye.

28th April 2015 Our final goodbyes. I don't know how we got to that day, the month after Jason's birthday seemed like a whirlwind and not for the reasons we wanted it to be.  Looking back I realise that we didn't know how to plan Jason's funeral and there was no-one to really offer any… Continue reading Saying Goodbye.

7th October…

I created a new private account just so I could keep up with groups/pages I liked without being hit by unwanted posts or conversations with people.
