We are a small local charity run by a group of women who have experienced baby loss.
We are passionate about helping women, their partners, family and friends to find healing after their loss.
We believe it is crucial to know you are not alone, that there is support, that there is a place for us to share our feelings with people who understand.
We hope you will find some comfort here, and perhapse one day we will meet to share, honour and celebrate our little ones who left too soon.
After our precious daughter Lily was stillborn on October21st 2011 I knew one day I would do something to try and help other parents experiencing baby loss in our community.
I had time to prepare for this most tragic of outcomes to pregnancy, many do not. Even with the knowledge that Lily would probably not survive birth I still found it so hard to gather things together that we wanted to have at her birth. I had a short time to make and collect as many memories as possible to remember my daughter, and to last me a lifetime.
With this struggle in mind, we decided to provide our local hospitals; Royal Lancaster Infirmary, Furness General and Westmorland
General with Remembrance Boxes to give to parents who lose their baby, containing items that enable them to build a collection of memories. Items that will become cherished treasures and ultimately help promote healing.
Recognising that women who lose their babies in miscarriage are faced with leaving hospital with nothing to honour the little life
We are privileged to have on our team a wonderfully talented photographer who has experienced baby loss. She is offering the gift of Professional Remembrance Photography to any of our local parents who lose their baby.
We are committed to raising awareness of baby loss in our community and to helping break the silence surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and neo-natal death.
" How might your life have been different, if, as you tried to express your anguish, a woman had listened to you.... quietly and intentley, as you expressed your pain, anger and fears.... a woman who was so present with your suffering and woundedness that she helped you to embrace your own anguish.... and give it a place to rest....
How might your life have been different? "

On this special date, we will light candles and be part of the global wave of light around the world. It will be an evening of remembering and honouring our babies, sharing and connecting with those who have travelled this path and those who help us to travel it.
If you would like to come along, please join our event on Facebook - to help us prepare for accommodating you.
Doors open 6pm please come early to allow time for candle lighting and putting an angel on our remembrance tree in memory of your baby or child.
There will be tea and coffee afterwards and time to talk and connect with each other.
We hope to see you there, message or email Val with any questions you may have, I will do my best to answer -
We understand that some of you may wish to join us for the Remembrance Celebration but be unable to attend - with this in mind we would like to offer you a way to include your precious babies too. If you send us their name in an email we will honour them by lighting a candle for them and speaking their name with all our babies during the ceremony.
United we honour our precious ones, together we help each other to heal.
Love and blessings, Val x x x
