Following the birth of our beautiful Poppy Rose we set up a fundraiser in memory of her for the Blossom Suite. The Blossom Suite is the bereavement suite on the maternity ward at Broomfield hospital. Their care and support has been beyond outstanding not just for us but for Poppy’s big sister and brothers too. This was extended into our rainbow pregnancy and since Poppy’s baby brother has come into the world. They have treated us with care and dignity. Have sat with us and cuddled us as we cried. They have treated Poppy as the special little girl that she was. They have provided us with so many memories of Poppy that when we went into their care we never ever expected. This care has continued with the amazing bereavement midwife, Tabitha, who also goes above and beyond her duties.

Walk from Billericay to Broomfield
In October 2020 we walked from our home in Billericay to Broomfield Hospital for the Blossom Suite. The 6 of us (myself, Poppy’s Daddy, big sister, 2 big brothers and baby brother) walked 12 miles in just over 6 hours. We were so incredibly proud of our children for taking part in this.

We will always continue to support Blossom Suite in any way that we can. Tabitha and the amazing team at Broomfield hospital were and continue to be our lifeline.
