I had some good news over the weekend. As well as volunteering with Chai for Pets As Therapy, I decided to return as a digital retoucher for a charity offering the gift of baby remembrance photography. It’s something I have done before, but for another organisation. This time I found the most wonderful UK charity which started a year ago. I was fortunate to pass their entrance exam and although the work isn’t always easy, there is satisfaction knowing you are helping to provide images that grieving parents will be able to treasure. Here is some information from their web site:
“Remember My Baby” (RMB) is a new UK-based registered charity which offers a gift of baby remembrance photography to all UK parents experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.
Our goal is to offer a service of baby remembrance photography to all parents suffering the loss of their baby in every hospital and birth centre across the UK.
Remember My Baby is a UK registered charity whose professional volunteer photographers visit families who may be experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.
When a family loses a lifetime’s potential for capturing milestones as their child grows, we will capture a precious baby with parents, siblings and extended family for free. Each family will receive a “free gift” of high-resolution digital images with a copyright licence to print for their own personal, non-commercial use.
We are recruiting professional photographers and NHS Trusts now. If you are a skilled or professional photographer who is interested in applying to volunteer for us, please click here to find out more information about becoming a Remember My Baby volunteer Photographer.
Alternatively, if you are an NHS Trust and you would like to know more about our service and how to introduce the service into your maternity hospital or birth centre, please e-mail us via email@example.com
