We recently had an email from a bereaved mum which moved us – her loss was a long time ago, and we asked if we could share it.

“In 1967 I had a premature baby at 20 weeks, back then I was told, “oh you can have another baby, just forget this and carry on”, never held the baby, he or she was just taken away, my point is the work you do is wonderful I’m a senior citizen and to my dying day I wish I would have had pictures of my sweet baby, thank you for what you do.”
Sadly, this was a common experience back then, even if a baby was lost at term.
Our hearts break 💔
Share your experience, help break the taboo.
Thank you Svetlana for sharing.
