Local Gift company, Brown Paper Packages have designed a care box for those who have experienced baby loss.
When someone experiences miscarriage, it can be difficult to know how to support them. A new gift box by Brown Paper Packages aims to change that.
In total one in four pregnancies end in loss. This can be an intensely distressing and lonely experience. The boxes have been designed to provide a way to recognise pregnancy loss and show bereaved parents that you are thinking of them.
“Brown paper packages have produced these thoughtful gift boxes for mums who have lost their baby. It is so important to acknowledge the loss of a baby and be there for family and friends who experience baby loss. Little gestures of support speak volumes and let people know that they are not alone in their grief.”
Anna Nella, Tommy’s midwife
Brown Paper Packages founder Helen O’Callaghan lost three babies before her two children were born. She knows first-hand that baby loss can be an isolating experience and seeks to address this with her new product.
“When someone loses a pregnancy or baby finding the right words to say can be difficult. Our Baby Loss & Miscarriage Care Box will help you to acknowledge a pregnancy loss and comfort someone going through what can be a devastating time” Helen O’Callaghan, Founder, Brown Paper Packages
We’re delighted to announce that Brown Paper Packages will be donating 10% of their profits directly to Tommy’s to help fund vital research and save babies’ lives.
“We’re proud that Brown Paper Packages has chosen Tommy’s to benefit from the proceeds of the Baby Loss and Miscarriage Care Box. Time and time again parents tell us that no matter at what stage it occurs, the end of a pregnancy is heart-breaking. We’re grateful that not only is Brown Paper Packages providing support for parents, but will help us to continue our life-saving research for every baby through their donations”
