Lily Mae Foundation
The Lily Mae Foundation is a baby loss support charity, here to Supporting Parents and Families after a Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage or Medical Termination.
Amy and Ryan Jackson founded the charity following the loss of their baby girl Lily Mae to still birth. When forming the Foundation Amy and Ryan pledged to help supports parents who would also go through what they did.
Our work sees us providing a support network to bereaved parents following the loss of a baby, training and support for midwives and other health and social care professionals, and research into what can be done to help prevent the loss of a baby in the future. Our vision at The Lily Mae Foundation is to work alongside Medical & Healthcare Professionals, other Charities and the All Party Parliamentary Group for Babyloss, to be recognised as the main provider of bereavement support for families who have lost a baby to Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage or Medical Termination in the West Midlands and Warwickshire.
Not only do we want to support anyone who has suffered the loss of a baby, but we want to raise awareness of how tragically common the loss of a baby is. Most people don’t realise that Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage and Medical Termination devastate the lives of more than 3,500 parents every year. Not only that, the loss of a baby is seen as a taboo subject, so parents are not encouraged to
seek the support that they so desperately need. We want to change all that.
