Story

We are first time parents to our beautiful daughter Luna Valentina Conroy who was born sleeping with no signs on the 29/11/2017 at home under her Christmas tree.

In our daughters memory we felt compelled to embrace upon a new journey when our lives took a very unexpected turn. We wanted to create something that we could channel all of our love, energy and focus into to help bereaved parents who also found themselves in our position.

We found it extremely uncomfortable at the lack of immediate and ongoing aftercare in the baby loss community so through lack of lifelines available to us at the time, we designed services that would have benefitted us immensely.

“Our charity Luna’s Fund stands for ‘Love & Unity for Neonatal & Stillborns’.”

Examples of our services:

• Redecoration of the baby’s nursery for parents who choose that this room is too painful for them.

• A therapeutic getaway to help both the mind recovering from trauma and the body recovering from labour.

• Food shopping deliveries to help reduce the lack of appetite whilst promoting nutritional goodness, especially to avoid facing the reality of grocery shopping and social environments.

The charity’s aim of offering an array of services and financial support for families, is to give them an inch of hope at a time when the thought of continuing with life is just too much.

From our own experience, the only thing that kept us going immediately after losing Luna was the thought of making new memories & having a purpose for our future and we hope our services can help soften the pain even slightly.

The long term goal for Luna’s Fund is to open a safe haven retreat for families to enjoy and create new memories; one being in the UK, ‘Luna’s Lodge’ & the other being in the sun, ‘Luna’s Legacy.’

As Luna’s mumma I believe it is my duty to share our story with the world of the raw reality of having a stillborn baby. From my textbook pregnancy, perfect labour and then the awkward reality of having to adjust, cope and grieve for our baby girl aged just 23 years old, I have written a blog.

It has reached not only the rest of the UK, main newspapers and the media, but across the world; raising awareness and breaking the stillbirth taboo along the way. If you have a moment I would love to share Luna's story with you and for more people to understand the harsh realisation of adjusting to the 'new me.' Search: www.lunasfund.com and click on Luna's Life.

We’ve learnt that one thing is for sure, Luna was born into this crazy world to make a difference and to impact people’s lives in one way or another. We are so grateful she chose us to be her parents, as that's eaxctly what we are doing!

Thank you for your support!

Lots of love, Ryan, Aimee & Luna xxx
