Baby LOSS

When we became parents of an angel baby, we found the pain unbearable, it wasn't right and there is nothing worse then finding your little creation gone.

 

We lost our baby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and since his death, we found a connection with other families who has lost their children. We all feel the same pain are bounded by many of the same tragic issues:

  • The loss of a child is something that no parent should have to suffer.

  • The loss of a child affect more than just parents, but the whole family and anyone who lives are touch by our angels.

  • The feeling of loneliness, as people will stop talking mid-flow or quickly change conversation rather than make contact.

  • The feeling of rage when you are told 'he's in a better place' or 'it's for the best'.

  • The wanting to know WHY! There are often no explanations found as to the cause of death.

  • The guilt and self questioning 'What if?', Could I of done something difference?'

  • The sense of loss, the devastating grief is exaggerated due to the lack of explanation.

  • It is often sudden, without warning and with no clues in previous medical history or scans.

  • It often affects the seemingly strong and healthy.

  • Surviving the death of a child, change who you are and what is importance in life.

Many of most important finding in the research surrounding childhood loss as well as bereavement counselling, has come from underfunded charities. So it is importance continue funding because:

  • Greater research is required to continue to reduce the numbers affected.

  • Bereavement counselling and services, so fundamental to help families look forward and try to find hope and happiness again, are predominantly funded by charitable donations.

  • Both require funding for research, development and investment in post-care support services.
