Bags of hope

Bear for an angel is a small non profit organisation, 

We are a group of parents affected by pregnancy, baby loss who wants to help families suffering from the devastation of loss.

Here's my story;

In 2010 I lost baby Teagan to a missed miscarriage and had nothing to acknowledge my precious baby so later my partner Joe brought a teddy bear which we found really helped us with our grief.

So August that year I started Bear for an Angel so I could help other families like mine, We begin providing teddy bears to families for acknowledgement, remembrance and most of all comfort.

In January 2017, I lost my 5th baby Quinn early on in pregnancy and again I had nothing so I put together small keepsakes called Quinn's bags of hope and we provide these to the hospital's Epau's, ATM we provide them to three hospitals, Ipswich, Grimsby and Scunthorpe,

Now I have 7 angels and I do this for them, 

Our bags of hope are so important especially in early pregnancy as they provide acknowledgement and comfort for the families affected ❤️

As well as the bags of hope we provide emotional support via social media and hope to start up a local support group in Ipswich Suffolk.

We are looking to raise as much money as possible so we can keep supplying our bags of hope and look to reach out to more hospitals with them also.
