DO SOMETHING AMAZING & SKYDIVE FOR CHARITY

The Snowdrop Appeal Jasmine & Central Delivery Suite

Please jump for 'The Snowdrop Appeal' to help raise funds for a new dedicated Specialist Bereavement Delivery Unit for still born babies, miscarriage and early baby loss at Derriford Hospital Plymouth.

About The Snowdrop Appeal Jasmine & Central Delivery Suite

In the UK today, sadly 17 babies a day are still born or pass away shortly after birth. For the parents and families who experience this, there are no words that can really describe how they feel.

For months, many would have been building up expectations and dreams of how their new life...

... will be when their baby eventually arrives. But sadly and for often no reason, those expectations and dreams are shattered when they hear those haunting words of "I am so sorry for you, but you have lost your baby".

From that point on their lives take a totally different route, one of despair, anger, guilt, anxiety and questions to which there are no or very little answers. At the time many would not even give a thought to what might be expected in the next few days, why should they, they weren't planning for this.

But soon, reality kicks in and most will be faced with having to deliver their baby still born at hospital. For Greg & Jen, this is exactly what happened.

On the 29th January 2009 Jasmine Phillips was stillborn at 32 weeks old. Greg & Jen were in the central delivery suite at Derriford hospital in a side room, surrounded by new born babies and expectant mums.

For both Jen & Greg this was the last place they wanted to be and I am sure these feelings will echo throughout all the other mums and dads that have experienced the same.

Greg & Jen can't change their loss, but we can and 'will' improve facilities for other parents and families who sadly lose their Angel Babies with this appeal.

We are working with Derriford Hospital to raise funds for a Specialist Unit / Area within the main hospital building, but away from the normal delivery suites for those parents who may have to experience sadly the same losses as we did.

Having a dedicated Area / Unit away from the busy Maternity Wards will help to improve the quality of care received, the experience and more importantly the memories, that parents and families take away with them, without the ordeal of being on a busy maternity delivery ward.

Please help us achieve our goal.

Your skydive will be one of the best experiences of your life but it will also help many others experience one of 'their worst' to become one of their best experiences in such tragic times of loss. Everything raised will go towards the appeal and you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and our own website or in the local Plymouth Evening Herald.

If you are unsure after reading Form 115A then you must seek advice from your doctor. Skydive Buzz staff cannot advise on fitness to jump. Medical concerns raised with our staff on the day of your jump will result in you being referred back to your doctor to have Form 115B signed and stamped. A rebook fee of £50 will also apply. It is your responsibility to be truthful on your medical history.
