This years Baby Loss Awareness Week was another busy and successful week.
As part of the Stakeholders Group for Baby Loss Awareness week I was invited down to the Houses of Commons to meet with MPs and the other organisations who are involved in making the week such a massive success.
It was amazing to see Justin Madders MP wearing the Our Missing Peace badge in support for us and all bereaved families. I was blown away to hear Justin Madders MP, not only talk about Our Missing Peace, but he mentioned me by name and was wearing an Our Missing Peace badge.
I was also able to attend Elle Wright’s Meet and Greet for her Book “Ask Me His Name”. I met some incredible Mum’s trying to navigate the world without their children in it. It was such an honour to sit and chat with them and offer any help that I could (my only wish is that I could offer more help).
It was then rounded up by heading to the Houses of Commons again to see how far the APPG Board have come and the work of The National Bereavement Care Pathway over the past year. To be part of something knowing that all of these amazing politicians, charities, health care professionals and most importantly parents are working together to make a real difference to the support that newly bereaved parents receive is just so humbling!! Maxine did and incredible job addressing everyone and spoke so eloquently about her beautiful Joshua. As always Will Quince MP and Antoinette Sandbach MP were fantastic and their passion to take the APPG group even further is so inspiring.
I connected with so many amazing people today and it was so lovely seeing the familiar faces of David Monteith, Jessica Clasby Monk and Tracey and Bob from 4Louis. I wonder what the next year has in store for us all?
