Friends of Serenity is delighted to work alongside Aching Arms to supply dedicated bears for their Luke’s Angel Boxes. We hope that the bears bring some comfort to bereaved parents.
Aching Arms is a baby loss charity run by a group of bereaved mothers who have experienced the pain and emptiness of leaving hospital without their much wanted baby.
They also provide dedicated Aching Arms bears to hospitals for midwives to give to newly bereaved mothers and in addition we reach out to mothers who contact us directly.
Every bear that they give is donated by a bereaved family and dedicated in memory of another baby’s life lost too soon. They hope that by giving the bear from one mother to another – that the bereaved mother will know she is not alone or forgotten and that she may find comfort in holding the soft bear in times of distress.
The bears in Luke’s Angels Boxes are currently dedicated and in the future we hope will also be undedicated, so that bears can stay with mother and child. If you are a mother after the loss of a child and would like a dedicated bear, you can contact the charity via their website www.achingarms.co.uk or find them on Facebook or on Twitter @AchingArms to request one.
