I decided to start Poppy Rose to raise awareness of baby loss after our beautiful baby girl Poppy was born sleeping at 24 weeks. Our story is a little different to those that you often hear. Baby loss in recent years is being spoken about more and there are so many angel Mummy’s out there who are working hard to bring our devastating worlds out for everyone to see. Yet I feel there is still a void that is still not spoken about.
Compassionate induction. Two words our bereavement midwife gave us to refer to our situation. Having a baby so poorly that as parents we had to make the devastating decision to end our pregnancy. This is a decision that no parent should have to make but in our cruel, cruel world there are parents, such as us, who have had to.
We would like to create a safe place for parents to come, hear about our story and hopefully not to feel so alone. As a couple we are usually very private people and we will stand together, as a team and deal with what life throws at us. But we feel that if we share our journey and provide a safe haven for just one family, baring our souls like this will be worth it.
