Been watching the scenes in Coronation Street closely this week and been a big topic of conversation at R Banks & Son (Funerals Ltd). Sadly these issues are all too real, and there is support out there and some fantastic charities doing work with families affected by stillbirth & neonatal death. SANDS, The Lily Mae Foundation, & Tommy’s who are all funded by charitable donations from the public, and don’t receive as wide spread publicity as some of the bigger charities. We urge anyone who found these scenes even just slightly emotional give what you can to these amazing charities who provide invaluable help to those families at need.
There is also an incentive in place by Angel Wings baby & child loss support provide cuddle cots to local hospitals, children’s hospitals, hospices etc to provide special units called cuddle cots (featured in recent episodes, the blue pipes and unit seen attached to the Moses basket) we at R Banks & Son Funerals Wigan are lucky enough to have been allocated one of these units designed to allow bereaved parents extra time to bond with their baby by using these specially designed climate control cots this Time allows the family to form an important bond with their baby; whether changing a nappy, dressing the baby, taking photographs or simply just staying close and this unquestionably helps families in dealing with their loss. So please if anyone feels they can make a donation to any of the above charities you’d be making a huge difference to someone, you may not realise it but you would.
