I first came to the HOPE group within Zephyr's in 2017 when I was pregnant with my "lucky number 7", having lost 6 babies in early pregnancy prior to that in varying traumatic circumstances. Zephyr's and HOPE were my only source of support at that time and the most valuable thing I could have asked for. They filled a huge hole in care for baby bereavement locally and in particular, during pregnancy after loss. I continued to stay in close contact with Zephyr's after my daughter was born safely in 2018, leaning on them again when I suffered another miscarriage in 2019 and then again in 2022. As I slowly healed, I desperately wanted to give something back and so I joined as a volunteer to co-host Zephyr's monthly face to face group evening support sessions. It means the world to me to be part of something so beautiful, caring and holistic borne out of such heartbreak.
