Donate to Abigail's Footsteps

What do they do?

We are a baby loss charity providing support and counselling for bereaved parents and families as well as specialist bereavement training for midwives and healthcare professionals.
Since 2010, we have worked to improve the way bereaved parents are cared for by hospitals and to better educate midwives on how to care for grieving parents. Sadly, stillbirths and neo-natal deaths occur daily, yet many hospitals are not equipped to deal with the parental care required, they have inadequate facilities and their staff receive little to no bereavement training.
By working with medical professionals to understand the issues and seek solutions our charity has helped many families.  One of our greatest contributions as a charity has been the creation and funding of the Abi cooling cot which allows parents valuable time to spend with their baby before saying goodbye.  These cots are distributed UK wide wherever the need and as funding allows.


Our charity is funded entirely by kind donations and our fundraising activities, if you can support us in any way, we would be very grateful.

Why is this important to us?

It is unimageable to understand what it is like to lose a child. This charity works to help parents and families cope with something none of us ever want to experience.

By supporting midwives and medical professionals they provide an essential service to improve how parents are helped in the worst of times. 

HOW abigail’s footsteps HELP?

“First of all I just wanted to thank you so much for starting up Abigail’s Footsteps, you have no idea how grateful myself and my partner was for the set up you have done in Medway Hospital. We stayed there for a night with out little girl Scarlett. Words really cannot describe how much that little bit of extra time we got to spend with our beautiful little girl meant to us. So than you so much for that”

Alica, Mum to baby Scarlett
