In the UK alone 17 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth, every day. That's 17 families, every single day, who have the shock of losing their much wanted baby, of having their hopes and dreams completely shattered.
On the 24th September 2010, our family became a part of those statistics when we lost our daughter Eilidh Beth. Read our story of loss and hope HERE.
We are working in the Highlands of Scotland through Scottish Charity SiMBA, Simpson's Memory Box Appeal:
~ providing precious Memory Boxes & Blankets of Love to Maternity Units (so far in Isle of Skye, Isle of Lewis, Caithness, Inverness, Fort William & Oban);
~ erecting a full sized memorial bronze tree, the Tree of Tranquility, in Inverness;
~ raising awareness of stillbirth and neonatal death through media, talks, & mailshots;
~ offering support, understanding and empathy to families who have experienced baby loss, through online support, one-to-one visits & monthly support groups;
~ raising funds for SiMBA (Simpson's Memory Box Appeal);
~ providing Family Rooms within maternity units, to give parents the opportunity to spend further precious time with and prepare to say goodbye to their baby in peaceful and private accommodation.
Susan is delighted and honoured to be working as Highland Coordinator with SiMBA (Simpson's Memory Box Appeal), and can be contacted
