A photographer from Old Deer has recently become a volunteer with the Remember My Baby charity and is hoping to raise awareness of the work it does for bereaved parents.

Marie Chapman assists the charity which offers a gift of baby remembrance photography to all parents experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.

The charity’s goal is to offer the service of baby remembrance photography to all parents suffering the loss of their baby in every hospital and birth centre across the UK.

When a family loses a lifetime’s potential for capturing milestones as their child grows, Remember My Baby Volunteer Photographers will capture images of a precious baby with parents, siblings and extended family for free.

Remember My Baby recently won an award for their work at the 4th annual Butterfly Awards.

The awards took place last August at the end of Babyloss Awareness Week and Remember My Baby won in the category of Cherished Keepsake.

Families can contact Remember My Baby, or the Volunteer Photographers directly if their hospital or birth centre does not currently promote the services offered. 

Alternatively, if you are an NHS Trust and you would like to know more about the service and how to introduce the service into your maternity hospital or birth centre please email info@remembermybaby.org.uk.

The charity is desperate for more photographer volunteers to help provide the sessions to meet growing demand.
