For the second year running I have been nominated and shortlisted for a Butterfly Award.
The Butterfly Awards are a prestigious evening to celebrate the work which individuals and groups do to support families of babies and infants who died.
I have been shortlisted in the blogger category.
It is strange to want to try and win such an award, because really it isn’t about winning this item, because my baby died; but for me it is to get her recognised as a person. To get her story told.
During our time we hit many things, Hyperemesis, Antenatal Depression, Early Pre-Eclampsia, HELLP syndrome, premature birth, IUGR, life in the NICU, her death the Sepsis, the protocols in which should have been in place, which weren’t All of these things I can raise awareness for.
So for me it isn’t the award itself, by her name coming to the surface, Neonatal Death and Post Neonatal death getting a mention. My work as an author and her Mum; I can bring awareness to these things. To help support others going through any of the above and of course the loss of their precious babies.
Please find The Butterfly Awards section on my blog, to take a look at my profile and video.
