Quinn's comfort bags

In October 2006 I lost my first baby to a chemical pregnancy Tayten, Then 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 devastated we had so many plans for this precious baby.

Even more devastating though was the fact that even though 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 teddy bears to other families affected.

After another few losses & families getting in touch with us I realised that there wasn't much out there for families like ours who have lost babies early on in pregnancy, 

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 (recently renamed Quinn's comfort bags) , with (bereavement midwife) Ali Brett's support I managed to get them into Ipswich hospital, then through social media Grimsby, Scunthorpe and most recently Liverpool women's hospital epau's, 

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 every time.
These are a small gift but mean so much to the families like ours, they offer acknowledgement and comfort at such a devastating time and therefore are so important & in much demand.

We also recently started providing families with our BfaA sibling comfort bears which are suitable for all ages due to machine sewn on features, siblings are affected too by the loss of a baby or child and these bears will offer some comfort.

It would mean so much to us if you would support this community project run by a family affected by pregnancy loss trying to make a difference.
