Lost Little Ones Meadow Suite Fund

Helping bereaved parents and their families create memories with their babies to last a lifetime

Sadly every year many families suffer the pain and trauma of baby loss. We know how important it is to provide these families with the time and space to create precious memories with their baby which will need to last a lifetime.

Meadow Suite

Meadow Suite is a dedicated suite and attached outside space on the labour ward at Leighton Hospital for parents suffering baby loss.

Our appeal raised £100,000 and the build was completed with
an additional £157,000 coming from Robertson Group and their supply chain

The Meadow Suite, which opened in September 2023, allows parents to stay together with their baby in a comfortable, non-clinical environment and provides an outside space where families can spend quiet time together away from the rest of the ward.

The suite has a bedroom with drop down double bed so that parents are able to stay together, a separate lounge and kitchen and most importantly a nursery room. It also has a separate entrance and exit and a dedicated parking space.

Our Arts Manager, Dr Deborah Riding, commissioned artist, Jac Seifert, to create special artwork for the suite with local families with lived experience of baby loss, which was also funded by MCH Charity.

Jac ran a series of workshops with bereaved families, providing them with the opportunity to use their experiences and ideas to co-create the designs with her. Some of the families involved had been at the heart of the project from its beginning, helping to raise funds when the Lost Little Ones appeal first launched.

How can you help?

Now that the suite is open we are continuing to raise funds which will be used to ensure that everything in the suite is in perfect condition for the families who use it.

We are working with the Bereavement Midwife to develop new ideas which the fund will support and we also have plans to work with Jac on a second phase of the art project.
