When your baby dies, you don't stop being a parent

In 2018, Hannah Pontillo, mum to Dexy and River, went on a mission to ensure bereaved mothers felt valued and validated on Mother's Day.

After her first son Dexy was stillborn, she was stunned to find that she could buy cards from a pet, but not from her son. Feeling unrecognised and freshly grieving Dexy's death, she contacted card company Thortful. They agreed wholeheartedly and asked Hannah to help them do something about it.

They worked together to created a range of cards specifically for bereaved mothers on Mother's Day. The words are written by Hannah and a group of talented artists provided beautiful illustrations.

"Mother's Day is hard but with small steps like this we can finally end the silence surrounding baby loss!" - Hannah Pontillo

Once again, 100% of the profits from the sale of these cards comes to Kicks Count and helps us reduce stillbirth and neonatal death.

It's a perfect example of a small gesture that can make a big difference.

All of us at Kicks Count, Thortful and Hannah really hope these cards can bring a smile to the face of a mum you know this Sunday.
