This is a sponsored post Before I became a mum, I had a career as a Legacy Fundraiser for Cancer Research UK. I would frequently give talks about the importance of making a Will. Yet, it always shocked me how few people actually had a Will. Or if they did have a Will then it was very rare for it to be up to date.

That to secure these rights, you merely need to have the position of Mother. Whether your child was conceived naturally, through IVF, was adopted or fostered you are a mother and I’ve been…

The Grief Of Baby Loss

A photograph of a brunette lady looking into the distance and looking tearful, her eyes are misted over with tears - The Grief of Baby Loss - Mrs H's favourite things

Our first baby was due on 14th January 2013. Although, I struggle to remember the due dates for the other babies I’ll always remember the day that our first baby was due to enter our lives. Sadly, that little boy or girl was never meant to be ours to hold. At 11 weeks pregnant, we discovered that the baby was dead. Their heartbeat had stopped when I was 6 weeks pregnant. When the midwife told me that the baby didn’t…
