Stanley will be supporting 4Louis at this afternoon's game

This afternoon's game will see the Reds support 4Louis to raise money for the charity

1 January 2020

Accrington Stanley will be supporting 4Louis at this afternoon's game against Rochdale to help raise money for the charity that supports anyone affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and the death of a baby or child.

They also work to improve the care bereaved families receive from health care and other professionals, and unfortunately miscarriage or the death of a baby or child is not a rare occurrence.

Every day in the United Kingdom around 15 babies die before, during or soon after birth, with one in four pregnancies sadly ending before they reach 12 weeks.

When a baby dies bereaved parents can feel very isolated, as they don't know anyone else who has had a similar experience.

Support from family and friends can sometimes fall away soon after a baby has died, and 4Louis offers support to families in many ways.

For example, they provide memory boxes to hospitals free of charge for parents to make precious memories with their babies.

This is often the only thing a bereaved parent leaves the hospital with, and the charity also provides cuddle cots free of charge.

These enable bereaved parents to spend time with their precious babies in the days after their loss, this is extremely important to bereaved families.

They have also provided and upgraded bereavement suites in hospitals, these rooms are so important as if parents lose a baby in a hospital with no bereavement suite they are placed on the delivery suite, where they are surrounded by people who have just given birth to healthy babies.

This is absolutely devastating for them, and any money raised is extremely gratefully received and means so much to the families that the 4Louis charity supports.
