Still Parents Teesside resulted from the coming together of three bereaved mums; Helen, Lauren and Nicole. Their sons – Jacob, Noah and Xander – all passed away before birth, and the lack of local support was a key factor in setting up the Charity.
Still Parents Teesside was formed in Autumn 2017, becoming a registered charity within a few months. The three mums devote their spare time to running the charity, on a completely voluntary basis. This includes the monthly support group, meeting with local hospitals to try and improve bereavement care, and taking part in training for new midwives, to name but a few.
Below you can read a little about the three babies who sadly left us far too soon, but whose short lives have inspired us to support others.
