In 2014 From The Other Side, helped raise over £100 for Jo’s Angel and nearly £500 for the charity Sands, which will train up midwives to help with stillbirths around the UK.
In Memory of Carys Sophia Grace
From the other side will be running a charity event for Jo’s Angel. All the profit raised will go to Jo so she can put a headstone on her daughters grave. Carys grace was buried in Warley Cemetery in June 2013. The family always go up to visit her and she is well loved by all.
Unfortunately Jo does not have the money to buy a headstone so Louise suggested that From The Other Side will run a charity event in her honor. So that we can finally show the world who Carys was.
Please read Jo’s comment to get the full story.
“When I fell pregnant with our second baby, I was delighted, scared and excited. I’d had a hyperemesis (severe sickness) with Marya our first, and was frightened about it again.
The next pregnancy was worse! But I knew it would be worth it. We had our first scan and saw the baby sucking it’s thumb, and I was already in love.
As the weeks progressed I felt our baby move and kick, which was so incredible. We had our second scan, and were told the baby was perfectly healthy and a strong heartbeat. We decided to find out what sex the baby was and it was a girl!! “It’s a sister”, Marya said.
About two weeks after our scan I felt a bit better, sickness-wise, but also felt something wasn’t quite right. I cried, saying I feel like something is missing.
Then I realised I hadn’t felt the baby move. I left it for nearly two days. Then was asked to come to hospital, they had said it probably will all be fine.
They tried to find a heartbeat with a Doppler. Then I was moved to the room where we had previously been two weeks before for them to use the ultrasound. The midwife held my hand, as no one said anything. “I’m sorry Mrs Grace but your baby has died.” What? MY baby? That doesn’t happen in my family. I completely broke down, what was I going to tell Marya?
Two days later, on the 16th June 2013, I gave birth to a beautiful, very small baby girl, who we named Carys Sophia Grace. My heart broke when we saw her, yet was full of joy, pride and love for her. We don’t know why Carys died.
The Friday after, we had a funeral for her, at Warley Cemetery.
She has taught me so much, about love, loss and life, as well as the kindness of people, and the new “family” I’ve found through Sands.
We cannot afford a memorial stone for her at the moment, and many people have offered help towards this (which is so wonderful). My friend Louise has set up a donating page for anyone who has so kindly offered to be able to donate directly into a fund for her.
Words are not enough to show my gratitude”. Jo Grace
