Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 28th Jan 2016 @ 1.43am, our world come crashing down...weighing 6lb.4oz our beautiful baby boy was born sleeping, he was so perfect in every way and will always be loved & in our hearts forever....

I had no complications during my pregnancy and thought everything was plain sailing as I was 37 weeks and so close to meeting out little boy!!.

But after feeling reduced movements on Sunday 24th Jan we popped to the hospital to 'put our minds at ease' but that's when our world was flipped upside down and the doctor told us the worst news we ever thought we would hear!! They couldn't find his heart beat! I went back in on Wednesday 27th and was induced for labour, and our perfect angel was born so perfect and so peaceful @1.43 on the 28th, a day I'll never forget!! As a mum to hold your baby knowing your never going to hear them laugh or see their eyes open was the worst pain imaginable but because of the wonderful charity SANDS we was able to spend precious time with Ronnie and make as many memories as possible in the time we had!
SANDS have also continued to help and support me through what I can only describe as our real life nightmare.

Unfortunately miscarriages, stillbirth and neonatal death is far to common, 17 babies die every single day in the uk. So All the money I raise in Ronnie's memory will help to fund research, training for Midwife's, equipment and help and support for bereaved parents like myself and James.

I want to thank everyone that already has and the people that continue to help us raise these funds! For the bottom of both our hearts it really does mean the world to us!!

RIP Our beautiful angel Ronnie Samuel Bennett....Mummy, Daddy, your big sister Elsie-Rae, your little sister Pennie and your little brother Vinnie love you always & forever xxxxx
