Bliss Buggy Push

A friend posted this on Facebook, spotted at a bus stop in London. It immediately brought tears to my eyes. So simple, yet it says it all. Please read to learn more about Bliss and a simple way you can help.

Having a premature baby turned our world upside down. It altered everything, all my expectations of parenthood, it made me question everything I held close, and I learnt for the first time what true fear is.

Bliss were a lifeline for me in that time. The fact there was a charitable organsiation set up to help parents like me gave me enormous comfort. The message board was a lifeline at times, and an added bonus, I have made lifelong friends who just "get it". I cannot tell you enough just what Bliss means to me.

So what do Bliss do to help parents like me? As I see it there are three main functions of Bliss. Firstly Bliss are there in a practical way to help parents. They give information and support through literature and peer support. You know those Bounty packs you get when you have a baby? We have our own Bliss parent packs with specific information for parents who have had a baby in NICU.

Bliss second function is to help fund research. I have blogged recently about the Honey Dressings Project , this is just one of a number of projects taking place.

The third, and arguably most important, is campaigning. The NHS is under extreme pressure to be all things to all patients. Babies don't have a voice. Bliss gives babies a voice.

All this, of course, costs money. I want to tell you about a simple way you can help Bliss. Push a buggy. If you can get to London the flagship buggy push is happening at Brockwell Park on the 16th June.

There are other pushes happening around the country and we're planning a Bury push in July. If you want to meet me, and the star of my blog, Joseph keep an eye out for details.


  1. So true, especially after having 3 x

  2. The London buggy push is the day before Little Misse's birthday, but let us know about the Bury one, if i'm not at work i'd love to come up :D

    Although I didn't have much contact with Bliss, their website has been a fantastic source of information for me, particularly on advice such as when to wean a premmie.

  3. Keep me posted on this as my be able to get on near us xx

  4. An impresѕivе sharе! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little homework on this.
