‘Remember My Baby’ offers a gift of baby remembrance photography to all UK parents experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.

Launched just over two years ago, over 700 remembrance photography sessions have already been provided across the UK to families losing their baby.

And now the charity is seeking more South Yorkshire photographers to volunteer their time, in order to help it offer this service to even more bereaved parents.

Adele Haywood, a professional photographer from Barnsley, volunteers for the charity and is hoping to raise awareness of the work it does for bereaved parents.

“The 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,” said Adele.

“Remember My Baby’s volunteers have been able to offer some comfort and solace to bereaved parents in over 75 maternity units and NICUs across the UK so far.

“When a family loses a lifetime’s potential for capturing milestones as their child grows, the charity’s volunteer photographers will capture images of a precious baby with parents, siblings and extended family for free.

“Families can also contact Remember My Baby, or the volunteer photographers directly, if their hospital or birth centre does not currently promote the services offered by the charity.”

The charity was recently awarded the Cherished Keepsake award at the fourth annual Butterfly Awards, which took place on the recent Babyloss Awareness Week. The Butterfly Awards celebrates and recognises champions and survivors of babyloss.
