Our beautiful little girl, Robyn was stillborn on May the 3rd, 2015 at 40 + 3 weeks. We would do anything to have her here alive and well in our arms, but tragically not enough is known about stillbirths, miscarriage and premature births. Most of you won't be aware that 1 in 200 women will lose a child after 24 weeks of pregnancy, 4,000 babies are stillborn every year here in the UK.
No parent should have to grieve the loss of a child. So we want to donate to essential research through Tommy's so they can try and help to lower those numbers and find answers and solutions.
As well as raising money, we hope by talking about our own loss we can also raise awareness, and make people realise there are things you can start to do before and during pregnancy for your own health and that of your babies. There is lots of information on Tommy's website: http://www.tommys.org/
