What is Sands?

The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society.

Sands is a charity that is very close to our hearts as on 6th July eight years ago we lost our little boy Elliott. He was at 20 weeks gestation and doing really well until I caught a very rare virus called Serratia Marcescens. It was our first pregnancy and sadly we were both very poorly (septic shock and pneumonia in the end) and we lost little Elliott. 

Sands provided us with a room at Southmead Hospital where we were able to give birth, recover and start to grieve in our own time with no pressure to leave. Their team was a fantastic bubble of love. Their aftercare and support was amazing.

It is not all sad; I try to raise awareness of this rare virus because it is so unheard of, in fact it can live healthily in young children but is very dangerous to pregnant women. What doesn’t break you makes you stronger and the past forms your present and future.

This charity does such important work for so many families. Please help to support this work by pledging £10 to pre-order the book.
