We offer you a warm welcome to our website.

If you are here because you have received a memory box from us, we offer our very sincere sympathies and can truly say 'we understand'.

Here is some very good advice from Tommy's that can stop unwanted pregnancy ads from 'following you' . You can also find more support information and how to stop receiving postal mailings here.

Philip's Footprints
 offers baby loss memory boxes, keepsake items and support for parents who are facing the devastating loss of a baby, from early 2nd trimester miscarriage to full-term or neonatal loss. At a time when clear thinking is impossible, these memory boxes help parents create as many precious memories as possible in the short time available and allow parents to share their baby's memories with loved ones. 
To date we have given over 250 memory boxes to Channel Island families. We also supply memory boxes for Robin Ward, the children's ward.

Our Lights of Love Christmas candlelit carol service, held in late November, gives parents an opportunity for reflection, to opportunity to remember and honour our babies, before the hectic festive period begins. (Guernsey SANDS offer a similar Christmas service.)

We support parents with a listening ear and a true understanding of how it feels to lose a baby - weeks, months and years after the event. Please get in touch with us if you would like some support.

We supply memory boxes in Jersey to Rayner Ward (Gynaecological), the Maternity Unit (including Special Care Baby Unit) and Robin Ward (Childrens), and for children out in the community via Family Nursing and Home Care and Jersey Hospice.

Do we get together to pack memory boxes? No, we don't. Due to the relatively small numbers needed if we packed lots of boxes space would have to be found to store them and also they might not be used for some time. We supply the empty boxes and contents and the health staff choose what to put in according to size of the baby.

Please note due to Data Protection laws we are not told who receives a memory box, so your identity remains completely private and we will not contact you. BUT please do contact us if you have any questions about anything or would like to meet Jo informally, to talk to someone who has been there (and survived).

If you have any comments, suggestions, can offer help or if this is your story too and you'd like some support information please Contact Us.

Thank you for visiting and supporting Philip's Footprints.

Best wishes
