Our present aims
Sleeping Angels aims to raise money for Family Bereavement Rooms to be located and available in all hospitals. The first hospital who has agreed to provide this service is West Middlesex Hospital, all the news and photos on this to follow shortly.
We aim to create a register that will eventually be acknowledged as a legal document for babies born sleeping 10-42 weeks.
To raise awareness of the law that says a baby is not viable unless over the gestation of 24 weeks. So, even if your baby is healthy, if he or she doesn't breath unaided, then medical staff 'by law' don't resuscitate!!
Finally to raise awareness of the sometimes insensitive and just inhumane way a mother is treated after experiencing the loss of her baby ie being put in a ward with mothers with healthy babies…
