Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

 I have been a midwife for 14 years and during that time, I have met so many families that have suffered the unthinkable tragedy of losing a baby.  I truly appreciate the need for improved bereavement facilities for the families of Dudley. These improvements include soundproofing to the room, a double bed to allow families to remain together, as well as calm decor. Generally a much nicer environment for families to be together, at the most difficult of times  

The suite will provide a private space for parents who have experienced the tragedy of a stillbirth or the loss of their baby post-birth, where they can begin to grieve the loss of their baby. 

Please dig deep to support me in running this marathon - knowing that you’ve gone a little way to help make the most unbearable of times in these families lives,  that little bit more comfortable. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
