Awareness is being raised of a baby remembrance photography.
Tina, a photographer from Whitley Bay, is a volunteer photographer for the charity Remember My Baby.
And as EastEnders covers a stillbirth storyline, Tina is hoping to raise awareness of the work the charity does for bereaved parents.
Tina said: “It is a very sensitive subject.
“Remember My Baby is for parents losing their baby before, during or shortly after birth, however with EastEnders running a stillbirth storyline, and the charity celebrating its first anniversary, this is a great way to raise awareness to parents who may not know that this service exists.”
Remember My Baby offers a service of baby remembrance photography to all parents suffering the loss of their baby in every hospital and birth centre in the UK.
Families can contact Remember My Baby – via www.remembermybaby.org.uk – or the volunteer photographers directly if their hospital or birth Centre does not currently promote the services offered.
A spokesperson for the charity said: “When a family loses a lifetime’s potential for capturing milestones as their child grows, Remember My Baby volunteer photographers 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 license to print for their own personal use.”
