    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On Saturday 30th of May 2015 our lives were to change forever. I was 35 weeks pregnant with our 3rd child. I attended Daisy Hill Hospital as my baby had been "quiet that day".
    Nothing can ever prepare you to hear the words "I'm sorry but your baby's heart has stopped beating". I can not put into words the pain, devastation and sadness that rippled through our family. It remains indescribable and maybe always will be.
    I decided to return to hospital on Tuesday 2nd June to be induced (as the 1st June is our eldest daughters birthday). After a short labour our beautiful Baby Eoghan was born sleeping; 4Lb 9ozs of perfection.

    I am currently fundraising and all the money that I raise will go towards the development of a bereavement suite within the Labour Ward at Daisy Hill Hospital, Newry. This specially designated room will allow parents, like ourselves, who sadly experience a bereavement in pregnancy to have a quiet and peaceful place to spend time with their baby and to create those special memories that are often taken for granted. Our aim is to ensure the comfort and privacy for these parents and their families at the most difficult time in their lives.

    Unfortunately, Daisy Hill Hospital does not have such a facility at present.

    Along with this JustGiving page, that will remain open until Wednesday 20th September, I have arranged a Coffee Morning on 10th June (SANDS awareness month) in Busy Bees Pre-school in Burren, 10am - 3pm. I am also having a Pub Quiz on Thursday 12th October (Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month) in The Canal Court Hotel in Newry.

    I ask everyone to please give generously as you do not know when you or your family will need such a special place.

    Many thanks

    Aine and Eugene Cunningham
