It is Bereaved Parents Month and we are wanting to help raise awareness for Baby Loss and help to support parents going through premature birth. A close friend of mine went through this terrible experience 5 years ago and decided to set up a site to help support other parents going through similar experiences. It is called Griogair’s Way after their son who sadly passed away after a premature birth.
