Sparks Charity asked me to share my bump photo and talk about my bump, and what it meant to me. My hopes, my fears.
But I didn't get one. A bump that is.
I delivered my baby at 27 weeks, I didn't get a bump, I got a baby in a box. Pre eclampsia is one of the conditions that Sparks is researching, the very reason my bump was robbed from me.
Did you know that in the UK over 3000 babies will die before their first birthday.
1 in 30 babies are born with a condition that may affect them for life.
Sparks are laumching their Bump campaign and there are some fantastic ways to get involved, find out more here.
Sparks fund research in many conditions affecting mums to be, babies and children.
Every mum to be deserves that bump, and every baby inside that bump deserves a happy and healthy future.
I can't thank enough all those who let me borrow their bumps. I have more who offered to help too, and will share these later in the week. If you have a bump picture you would love to share, please get in touch.
Huge thanks to the following.
