Find­ing hope in tragic loss

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

I RE­CENTLY met Clare and Rob Davies and daugh­ters Eva, eight, and Lyla, six months. They have five other chil­dren too – Emma, Faith, Bobby, Isla and Georgie. All still­born, but not for­got­ten. “Peo­ple told us we should stop try­ing,” Clare told me. “But the need to fill my empty arms was over­whelm­ing.” Lyla’s ar­rival fi­nally filled that void – thanks to Tommy’s in­spi­ra­tional Still­birth Re­search Cen­tre and Rain­bow Clinic in Manch­ester. I vis­ited, ahead of Baby Loss Aware­ness week, and saw how staff help fam­i­lies. And I urge you to back the char­ity any way you can – www.tommy’s.org.
