    Story

    Hello my name is Nadine Griffin and I am from Liverpool. I am trying to raise funds in order to open a new wellness centre for women in my local community who have lost a baby/child through miscarriage, still birth, death of a child who has lived and those who struggle with fertility issues and are undergoing treatment such as Clomid and IVF. Having suffered 2 miscarriages myself in March and August of this year, at 11 week and almost 6 weeks, I know first hand the devastation the loss of a baby causes. I have also found through this horrendous journey that as women we don't talk about the heartache we are suffering, we carry on and put on a brave face but inside we are crumbling. I want to try to bring women together who have suffered this loss and those who are having fertility problems and trying to conceive a much longed for baby. I want to get us talking about these issues, tell our stories and support each other. It would also be great for women who have been through these experiences and have come out the other side and now have their special baby/babies. Hearing other women's success stories really helps in keeping the faith and not losing hope that one day we will become mummies. There is not a lot of support for women in my situation, you get handed a leaflet or pointed to a website to read and get information or advice, albeit it virtually over a screen. I want to bring women together to talk and support each other but I also want to help them in their recovery alongside talking. I want to provide meditation, massages, reiki, acupuncture, all of which have helped me massively in my own recovery and I want to help women recover physically as well as emotionally. I would also love to introduce men into my plans as they also go through the heartache us women go through and it can be really hard on them as they are put in a position where they often feel they have to be strong for the woman. Offering couples support and holistic therapies listed above. The support for women is very limited, it's even more so for men. The image you see attached to my post is my babies tiny casket, the baby we sadly lost at 11 weeks. I brought my baby home to be with us as I felt I needed to do that as part of my recovery. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, Nadine x

        Having suffered 2 miscarriages in March and August of this year, I know only too well how devastating this is on a women and also a relationship. Women and men don't talk about this devastating experience. I want to change that, I want to offer support & holistic therapies.
