Baby Bean Appeal - handover of 4 wireless fetal monitors to Jersey Maternity.
This must surely be our biggest news for the year!
A fantastic evening for the Baby Bean Appeal team of Philip's Footprints Jersey & Guernsey, Baby Lifeline and Friends of SCBU - a handover to the wonderful maternity team of FOUR, yes FOUR wireless fetal monitors. This gives Jersey mums in labour the chance to be both monitored and mobile, have an active birth and the best chance of a positive birthing experience and a really great start in life for Jersey babies.
We have already paid another £3,500 towards the fifth and final monitor - the end is in sight! A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us - whether you've come along to an event or made a donation - thank you so so much. This is a massive achievement for a little charity and we really could not have done it without everyone's support.

You had to be up early for this one! 87 keen runners were chomping at the bit to go and run the runway. Very grateful thanks to Ports of Jersey, Jersey Airport Fire Service, Aero Club for their expertise in helping this go smoothly.
A fantastic £2,507 was raised!! And the bacon butties afterwards at the Aero Club were delicious!

JERSEY GENERAL HOSPITAL TRAINING DAY
29 June 2016
29 June 2016
Today I attended a fantastic talk by Jan Auffret, one of our lovely Jersey midwives, entitled 'Making Memories'.
Midwives mostly look after us on the most amazing days of our lives, but just sometimes they look after us on the very worst day of our lives. It was a wonderful opportunity to share with some of our local midwives Jan's knowledge and our memory boxes in an informal setting. It also gave them the opportunity to direct questions to both Jan, with her wealth of experience in bereavement and to me, who has been that shell shocked mum who has just been told "I'm sorry, there is no heartbeat."
A great opportunity for learning and one that I hope we can do again.
