Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In September 2012 our world changed forever during a routine 20 week scan. We were told the devastating news that our baby was seriously poorly with profound mental and physical disability, and we should consider saying goodbye. 

This life-changing conversation took place in a stifling hot, airless, soulless, tiny room with plastic chairs, not big enough to seat 2 parents, a midwife and a consultant. Its door opens into the screening waiting room where parents with smiles, scan pictures, bumps and joy are all waiting. We dubbed this room the "Doom Room".

Since James was born asleep at 24 weeks, we have returned to Kingston hospital during 3 more pregnancies, and needed to use this room dozens more times for many different reasons.

Tragically our second son, Benjamin, was also diagnosed with the same condition that his brother suffered with, and was born asleep at 18 weeks.

We want to raise money in their memory, to help improve the facility where the most serious and sensitive conversations of peoples lives take place. Where families might be told that their baby is poorly or has sadly passed away. Somewhere families can be given the space and information they need to make the toughest decision they'll ever have to make. Somewhere women can rest after an invasive procedure, and take the time they need to recover.

Any donations to help us achieve this goal are gratefully received. Keeping the memory of our sons alive.
