    We are Emma & Matthew and this is our story.

    Monday 23rd of March 2020 At 36 weeks & 3 days pregnant, we were told our son’s heart was no longer beating.

    Monday morning I awoke knowing something wasn't right, I didn't wake up to Albie's morning kicks. I got on my birthing ball and drank some cold water. I asked Matt to hold my bump and talk to Albie, but still nothing. I rang the hospital who told me to go in to be checked over, but Matt couldn't come because of COVID-19.

    When Matt arrived at the hospital we were taken into another room to be told for the third time our baby no longer had a heartbeat. We decided to go home late Monday afternoon.

    Tuesday came and we went back to the hospital so I could be induced. Albie Charles Nazar was born sleeping at 10:36pm weighing 5lb 14oz, looking just like his big brother Noah with a head full of beautiful, dark hair.

    Due to the Virus we couldn't have family & friends to come a visit us and to meet Albie. We face-timed family and close friends to meet Albie, our experience was somewhat very different to others due to the restriction in place at the time. Thankfully when Albie went to the funeral directors Noah was able finally meet his baby brother for the first time, seeing our sons together is something we will never forget and cherish forever.

    Friday the 3rd of April we said our final goodbyes, sat 2 metres apart from our family.

    Following the loss of our son, we haven't been able to receive support as parents normally would, but sadly even when there isn't a global pandemic some parents never receive the appropriate care & support they need.

    We will never forget the kind people who helped us at Kings Mill Hospital. Andrea my midwife that came off annual leave to help me give birth, Amy who stayed with us all day making memories with our son, Edith for helping us to arrange Albie's funeral & blessing him in the hospital, our Bereavement Midwife Mel and most of all Carly from the charity Zephyr's.

    With the money raised we hope to help out other parents that go through Stillborn and Neo-Natal deaths. As it will go towards gifts such as memory boxes that can create precious and lasting memories of their children, just as we did with Albie.

    Please donate anything you can, big or small. It will all be appreciated.


    All our love Emma, Matthew, Noah & Albie x

        I can’t even imagine what you are dealing with. Such a strong family. My sister lost my nephew Harry at 34 weeks and so I know how important this is xxx

      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 nonprofit.

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

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
