Proud to be Shortlisted for the Tommy’s Mum’s Voice Award

I’m very proud and delighted to have reached the shortlist of the Tommy’s Mum’s Voice Award, sponsored by Seraphine.

The award “celebrates a mum who has spoken out about her own experience and given hope to others.”

It is in recognition for the work I do in Hugo’s memory – raising awareness of HELLP syndrome, premature babies, and baby loss. Fellow bereaved parents, as well as those who have not lost a baby and health professionals have got in touch to say my writing has touched them, and helped them too. Being able to make a positive impact from my loss is a small comfort.

A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to write in support of my nomination – some of you sent me a copy of what you wrote, and Tommy’s included some in their email to me too – they made me rather emotional!

Being shortlisted is a huge honour for Hugo’s Legacy, and #MatExp.

There were some wonderful bloggers in the longlist, and it is a privilege to have been named amongst them.

I have been invited to an awards ceremony in London on March 11, where the winners of the awards will be announced.

My beautiful Hugo.

My beautiful Hugo.

Mummy, Daddy, Hugo
