Still Parents Teesside was formed in 2017 by bereaved mums; including Helen and Nicole, whose sons – Jacob, and Xander – passed away before birth. The charity was set up to support other bereaved parents and anyone else affected by baby loss.
In recent years, other parents have joined the charity as trustees to offer their support and to share their experiences.
Everyone involved devotes their spare time to running the charity, on a voluntary basis; this includes running the monthly support group and other events, meeting with our local hospital to try and improve bereavement care and donating keepsakes to recently bereaved local families.
Below you can read a little about our babies who sadly left us far too soon, but whose short lives have inspired us to support others.
