Quinn's bags of hope

In April 2010 I was pregnant and had a tiny bleed, after an emergency scan we found out that there was no heartbeat, I still remember those words echoing in my head and my heart breaking, I was totally devasted we had so many plans for this precious baby.

Even more devastating though was the fact that eventhough we had the scan we wasn't offered the photo & didn't have anything tangible to acknowledge our precious baby Teagan, 

It was then that my partner brought us a personalised teddy bear we found this helped with our grief.

I along with my family's support started Bear for an Angel to be able to offer this to other families affected.

In 2017 after my 5th loss baby Quinn I started making up little bags of keepsakes and was determined to get them into hospitals, they was named Quinn's bags of hope, with (bereavement midwife) Ali Brett's support I managed to get them into Ipswich hospital, then  through social media Grimsby, Scunthorpe and most recently we was contacted by Liverpool women's hospital for some, with us now supporting four hospitals and aiming to supply at least 20 bags to each hospital and each one costing around £2.50 to make up we need to raise £200 everytime.

These are a small gift but mean so much to these families like ours, they offer acknowledgement and comfort at such a devastating time and therefore are so important & in much demand.
 
We hope to reach out to more hospitals in time once funds allow.
