May 7th is International Bereaved Mother’s Day.
It is a day for those in the Pregnancy and Infant Loss community to come together to show their support and recognition for those mothering children no longer here with them.
On this day we encourage you to reach out and let a bereaved mother know that you remember their baby and you see their motherhood.
Our volunteers have created and gifted to you a beautiful card that you can down load and print to give to a special Mum on this day as a simple gesture of understanding and love.

Our volunteers have also been creating matching personalised profile pictures via our Facebook page. Images are free to request at this link HERE
