CRADLE IS NATIONAL NON PROFIT ORGANISATION, WHO WORK CLOSELY WITH THE NHS, TO SUPPORT BEREAVED PARENTS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED, OR ARE GOING THROUGH EARLY PREGNANCY AND BABY LOSS.
We have over 70 ambassadors stationed at hospitals all over the country, including DILAM Mother Chloe Westmore, who works closely with Southend and Basildon Hospital. No matter what you’re going through, we are here for you.
These uncertain times have only made us even more passionate about supporting people going through heartbreak. Despite being unable to offer in person support at this time, we still have plenty online support for people to come seeking help.
Chloe has been fundraising for CRADLE since last year, and with her efforts, is able to offer free funded online counselling workshops to women and partners following their loss, as well as free 1-2-1 support too.
Simply email her to enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org
