ABOUT US

Supporting Parents and Families after a Stillbirth or Neonatal Death

The Lily Mae Foundation supports Parents and Families who have tragically and traumatically lost a baby to Stillbirth or to Neonatal Death. Despite its frequency, there is very little public perception of the devastating impact of Stillbirth and Neonatal Death on Parents and their Families.

The Funds that we raise help us to Provide:

  • Memory Boxes to Bereaved Parents and Memory Making Kits to Grandparents
  • Counselling Support for Parents, Siblings and Family Members.
  • Information to Parents, Families and to Health Care and Medical Professionals.
  • Training and Support for Midwives, Student Midwives and Neonatal Nurses.
  • Research into the Prevention of Stillbirth and Neonatal Death.

Foundation News: Prevention Strategy

Providing Vital Information to Promote the Health and Wellbeing of Mums and their Babies

The Lily Mae Foundation has generously donated 10,000 MAMA Wellbeing Wallets to maternity units across the Heart of England Foundation Trust for pregnant ladies, and we are not stopping there with a further 15,000 on order.

The wallets are a robust plastic zip-lock pouch in which mums can keep their handheld antenatal notes. The wallets ensure the notes are kept protected, but they are also colourfully printed with important advice regarding mum’s health, and that of her baby. This ensures that key messages such as monitoring babies’ movements become second nature to the woman as she carries the wallet with her.

Inaugural Charity Ball Welcomes Brides, Grooms and Guests with a Beautiful Twist

On Saturday 24 June 2017, The Lily Mae Foundation hosted their Inaugural Charity Ball in association with Guy Salmon Land Rover, Coventry at The National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham.

The Lily Mae Foundation’s inaugural charity ball welcomed over 200 guests for an evening of fun and fundraising to support Parents and Families who have suffered the devastating loss of a baby to Stillbirth or Neonatal Death.

Guests attending the event had the unique opportunity to wear wedding attire with many of the ladies choosing to do just that! The night was a wash with beautiful Wedding Dresses giving past brides a chance to relive their happy day.  The Grooms joined their wives in Black Tie and other non married guests enjoyed a fantastic night.

The night was full of entertainment with a table magician and singing waiter entertaining guests during dinners well as an opportunity for one lucky person to win a Holiday to Thailand.  A Raffle and Auction took place which included a 14 night stay in 5* Accommodation in Mauritius, raised thousands to support bereaved Families and Friends.  Britain’s Got Talent 2011 finalist Pippa Langhorne, band Soul’d Out, and Free Radio DJ Dan Kelly provided outstanding entertainment for all of the guests.
