Help us raise the £300,000 we need to support 100 families in West Yorkshire suffering the pain and grief of losing a baby.
Without support, this devastating loss can have a profound effect on the health and wellbeing of these families long into the future.
Forget Me Not is here for these families: mums and dads who find out their baby is unlikely to survive birth, parents who go through pregnancy knowing they may only have a few moments with their baby and siblings who are grieving for the brother or sister they never got to meet.
“With Forget Me Not we could spend time together as a family. It was like a lifeline. You don’t expect that – to be thrown some extra time that you never thought you’d have.”
By providing midwifery support, counselling and a place to spend precious time with their baby, we can help families feel less isolated and better able to cope, not just through the immediate trauma, but throughout the rest of their lives, helping families learn to live with their loss and in some cases, navigate the challenges of another pregnancy.
We receive no NHS or government funding to run this vital service, which to date has supported over 433 families. That’s why we’re asking for your help to raise £300,000 - enough to help up to 100 local families.
For families who’ve have lost a baby, every minute matters. Please donate now.
