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. Our aim is to raise awareness of the impact of pregnancy and baby loss and bring some comfort to bereaved parents and their families after the loss of a baby. We provide Aching Arms Bears to hospitals for midwives to give to newly bereaved mothers. We also reach out to mothers who contact us via our website, email, Twitter and Facebook and send dedicated bears, from one mother to another. By giving the gift of a teddy bear our hope is that a bereaved mother will know she is not alone or forgotten and she may find comfort in holding the soft bear in times of distress. Every bear that we give is donated in memory of another baby’s life lost too soon. With each bear will be information that connects bereaved mothers to others through larger UK charities that can give ongoing support to her and her family.
