Day 1 of Baby Loss Awareness Week ~ A mother shares her story

On the first day of Baby Loss Awareness Week, a mother and photographer shares her story on the anniversary of her baby loss.

On this day in history….. nine years ago today, I woke to the worst feeling ever! I was 39 weeks pregnant and my little baby boy who was usually a wriggly little fish in the morning was heartbreakingly still. .. not a movement. Terrified we went to the hospital to be told what I already knew… Our baby’s heart had stopped.

10659142_10152513784473757_1825727701014069901_nIn that moment our world fell apart and by the end of the day I had given birth to a beautiful but silent little man… perfect in every way except he wasn’t breathing or crying . Our hearts were broken and we became a statistic… 1 of 11 other parents whose life was turned up side down by stillbirth that day.

So ironically, today marks the start of ‪#‎babylossawarenessweek‬ as well as the birth of our little angel and not only will I be lighting a candle today but to ‪#‎breakthesilence‬ I will be posting no end of links this week and taking part in wave of light at the end of baby loss awareness week too. Many of you have already accepted the invitation to join me which means so much.

So birthday wishes to our little angel Aidan who should be celebrating his 9th birthday today.

Love you forever and miss you always

Baby Loss Awareness Week: 9th October ~ 15th October 2014

The 9th ~ 15th October 2014 is Baby Loss Awareness Week. Throughout the week bereaved parents and their families will be remembering their babies’ all too short lives, knowing that thousands of parents elsewhere in the world will be doing the same.

The week also provides a crucial opportunity for people to talk obabylossawarenessweekpenly about the subject of stillbirth and neonatal death and raise awareness of an issue that needs more attention.

The week ends with Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day on 15th October 2014.  On this day, we would like to invite you to take part in the global ‘Wave of Light’ to remember all the babies that died during pregnancy, at, during or after birth.  Please light a candle at 7pm and leave it burning for at least 1 hour.  This can be done individually or in a group, at home or in a communal space. Wherever you do this, you will be joining a wave of light uniting the world in honour of those babies who lit up our lives for such a short time.

You can also show your support by wearing a Baby Loss Awareness pin. The exclusive Baby Loss Awareness enamel pins are available to buy from Sands or any of the participating charities.

RMB launches at the Digital Imaging Show

RMB Co-founders and volunteer photographers were very pleased to have the opportunity to promote RMB to professional photographers at The Digital Imaging Show this week, our debut event, with donated stand space courtesy of The Societies of Photography.

This was the first outing for our new banners kindly donated by Digitalabs who were also at the show. Our new recruitment cards were perfect to hand out so a huge thank you to Sim Imaging for donating them to us at short notice and a big thank you to MTA for producing the albums for us.

Cheryl Johnson, Lesley Johnson and Norman Rubenis attended on Sunday, and Nicky Heppenstall and Kim Smith attended on Monday. Interest was high and we hope to have some new applications coming in as a result!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to talk to us!

Welcome to the launch of Remember My Baby

Hello and welcome to the Remember My Baby website.

It is with enormous pride that today we have finally realised the dream and passion of eight women who have come together to ensure that every parent has the opportunity to have the free gift of professional images of their babies born sleeping.

We know that we already have a tremendous amount of support from photographers and midwives alike and we are truly grateful but in order to help as many parents as possible we need to expand our support.

Please, help us spread the word to midwives, hospitals and other photographers so that every parent of a baby born sleeping has the opportunity to have a beautiful keepsake.

And though our arms...
