Monday 29th May 2023


On Friday I donated a Cuddle Cot & 20 memory boxes to Manacor hospital.
As you know my dad, step mum, sister & niece live in Mallorca and when Maggie died they were able to meet her due to Burnley hospital having a cuddle cot!!
We got to spend 3 days with our beautiful little angel & made as many memories as we could, memories that have to last us a lifetime 💜I found out that when a baby is stillborn in Mallorca, parents only get an extremely short time to make memories with them I then KNEW I HAD to get a cuddle cot there!
Now they can spend time, make memories & families will have time to fly over and meet baby if they are from mainland or abroad. Just like my family did 🥹
It’s taken a VERY LONG time & a lot of obstacles along the way, but we did it 😍
It’s been a long and extremely emotional week 💜
Myself & my family spent days making memory boxes, translating Spanish to English & English to Spanish, providing training to the hospital and all the staff on how to use the cot, signing so much paperwork it’s unreal!
I don’t think I’ve ever been to Mallorca and not sunbathed 😂
My dad, step mum Katy & sister Joana have been so amazing helping me to get the cot to Mallorca, translating, helping me make all the boxes etc. They held me up when I was heartbroken even though they were too 💔
I would like to put a massive THANK YOU on here to MIKE PETIGREW who PAID for my flight and the cuddle cot to go to Mallorca!
Mike is such an amazing guy and to do this for Maggie’s legacy means the world to Mark & I.

Tuesday 16th May 2023


Today after months of meetings and a lot of personal learning on my part,
I provided bereavement training at
I have worked alongside Keely from Child Protection to offer this training & support and I’m so proud to be able to be a voice for all my angels mummies & families.
Keely is amazing and is so passionate about what she does as well as helping bereaved families as much as possible.
I feel so lucky to have her helping me understand more about what happens “legally” when a baby/child dies.
Her knowledge will help me support my families even more, as I can now answer the questions they have thoroughly.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous!
But also so proud!
It was a very mixed bag of emotions for me today & I was angry at myself for getting emotional 💔
It’s hard not to when I’m speaking about Maggie & why I do what I do 👼🏼
However, the feedback I received was amazing and I feel so proud to be apart of the training around the sudden death of a baby/child & ways to possibly improve & keep doing what these officers are doing!!
Thank you to my angel mummies who provided me with feedback that I could use today, you guys are my warriors and I’m so proud of each one of you for your honest & open messages 😘
Thank you to Mark for having to constantly listen to my “practice runs” of what I wanted to talk about, only to change it, read it again and then change it back 😂

How amazing to be one of the winners of THE LANCASTRIAN AWARD 😱😍
I was presented with my certificate today, by the lovely Philip, and I couldn’t be prouder!!
My beautiful Maggie’s memory is going to live on as long as I have breath in my body! 💜👼🏼
Thank you to everyone who nominated me 😘
But a massive thank you to Marky whose nomination they saw first as he wrote “I’m extremely proud of my wife” 🥹

Today I went over to Burnley to see Frankie.
Frankie gave me £600 that her & her husband Zee have raised for Maggie’s Stillbirth Legacy in memory of her little boy,
Muhammad-Yusuf Hassan 💙🦋
When little Yusuf grew his angel wings, he was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital and was placed in Maggie’s cuddle cot.
The cuddle cot enabled Frankie and her husband Zee to create some everlasting memories with Yusuf and also for me to be able to go to the hospital and meet Yusuf, which was an honour.
Yusuf will always hold a special place in my heart 💙
Frankie & Zee have requested that I use the money they have raised to buy more memory boxes & put towards my group Little Lifetimes 🦋 that supports angel mummies, from pregnancy loss onwards, which Frankie attends.
I honestly can’t thank you guys enough for this massive donation!! It will really help and you both know how much.
💙 Muhammad-Yusuf Hassan 💙

Cuddle cot & cuddle blanket training again yesterday at RBH.
It was one of the smallest groups I’ve trained but it was one where my nerves where bad as “big boss” Amy was there 💜
It’s so important for me to “get this right” and help these staff as much as I possibly can!
A doctor even came in on her day off for the training so that shows how important it is!
ACE to see a member from housekeeping there as well 😍
Thank you ladies for coming along and I hope the training helped you!

Najma & I travelled to BRADFORD HOSPITAL with 15 Adil’s Legacy packs & 10 Maggie’s Legacy boxes.
The staff that came to the donation were lovely. They wanted to know all about Adil & Maggie & why we do what we do!
We can’t wait to be working with this hospital again in our babies memories xx
Thank you so much as always to Blackburn UK Trust for funding the Adil’s Legacy packs.
As some have heartbreakingly already been used, we are seeing how much they are helping families and just how needed they are xx

Some exciting news 💜👼🏼
Maggie’s stillbirth legacy is now TRADEMARKED! ⭐️ 🎉
This might seem like nothing to some people, but it’s a big thing to Mark & I.
This means that if someone tries to steal & falsely use her logo again to raise money they legally CANT!!!
I can’t thank Stacy Coates enough for doing all this for me 😍
You really are the best 😘
Thank you for being as excited as me! Although we need to stop crying together 😂
It’s been a long 6 months wait but Stacy did it!!!
Just another milestone for my baby girl!! She is now “trademarked” for the next 10 years 🥰

Today was an amazing, but heartbreaking day for me.
Today my beautiful friend Najma donated her first lot of “ADIL’S LEGACY PACKS”.
These where donated to Royal Blackburn Hospital A&E .
The packs have been mainly funded by Blackburn UK trust with a little help from Maggie’s stillbirth legacy.
These packs are lovingly put together by Najma & her children in memory of her son Adil.
They are specifically made for Muslim babies and children.
These packs contain ….
A hat (for dad)
A prayer Mat (for dad)
A perfume (for dad)
Prayer beads (for mum)
A head scarf (for mum)
A white shroud (for baby)
Camphor block (for baby)
A book (for the parents)
All presented in a memory bag for the parents to keep.
I went to Najma with this project at the end of November and today was the 1st ever donation and we have more to come these next few weeks in hospitals throughout the UK.
It has been an absolute honor and a privilege to be apart of this & I’m so happy to be working with Blackburn UK Trust.

Yesterday we donated ”cuddle blanket” number 2 to Royal Blackburn Hospital 🏥
This blanket will help parents & families spend time with their child (up to the age of 18) & create some everlasting memories when they have passed away 💔
As this is in the A&E department it will be for children who have died suddenly/unexpectedly so it really is a VITAL piece of equipment!!
The staff here are so very busy, as you know, but Heather Anderton, Naomi Turner, Tonia Collins and their team are so passionate about “getting it right” when it comes to bereavement!!
You guys are all AMAZING and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for what you do 💖
This blanket was only donated so soon because of my amazing sister Fiona Mcnamee organizing the gala 💞
We have booked the 2nd gala for the 24th June 2023 👼🏼💖
I then went to do some training for some of the staff in the department on how to use the cuddle cots/blankets & how to speak to parents when their child has died in the department 💔
It went so well that I have been asked to go into hospital once a month to do training so that ALL staff will be trained on how to use a cuddle cot/blanket & how to talk to families 👼🏼
I feel so PROUD to have been asked to do this!!
Thank you so so much CuddleCot by Flexmort for the training I received from Will as he has enabled me to do this 🦋
As always, thank you all for your ongoing support 👼🏼💖

Thursday 14th July 2022

Liz from Rummage Rescuers & 3 others community companies donated a HUGE £2,000 to Maggie’s Stillbirth Legacy 😱👼🏼💖
This has been sent over in full to the cuddle cot/blanket company & can not thank Liz and the team enough!!
Thank you Mr Mayor for all your doing for the community and the borough of Blackburn!!

Andrew who works for the mayor is one of the nicest, most knowledgeable men I have met!!
It’s so nice when other fundraisers help each other, Big things can be achieved by helping each other 💖💙

Tuesday 12th July 2022

Today I have had the amazing CuddleCot by Flexmort at my house giving me some training on how to use the “cuddle blanket” & a recap on how to use the “cuddle cot” 💙💖
This will help me to know exactly what I’m doing so I can tell people when we donate these vital pieces of equipment 👼🏼 😇
Thank you Will for driving for over 3 hours to get here and for being so thorough!!
It’s not only an amazing company because they enable parents & families to spend time with their baby/child once they have died but also because they are so passionate about helping families!!!
Thank you FLEXMORT 😊

Yesterday my mummy bear and I donated 15 memory boxes, 20 self care packages and 20 heart beat recorders to Lancashire women & Newborn centres Fetal medicine clinic 👼🏼💖
These boxes will be given to parents who are told that their baby will not survive the pregnancy or once they are born 💔
I know how much these boxes will help and it’s only because of Maggie’s legacy that we can help them!!
Yesterday was the FIRST time my mum has been back to that part of the hospital since Maggie died 👼🏼
I knew she would be a little upset but I had no idea how much it would affect her!! I realised as we got to the doors she was shaking 😢 She still came in and donated, we every went up to the birth suit was Maggie was born sleeping. When we got back to the car we had a little cry together!! 😭
Even now almost 7 years on, losing Maggie is still THE MOST painful thing in this world 💔 I HAVE to face things “head on” I have to “fight” the emotions but for so many people its just not something they can do!! 💔
I’m so glad my mummy was there yesterday but I feel bad that she was so upset BUT at the same time strangely happy because it shows how much she LOVES & MISSES her beautiful granddaughter Maggie 💖👼🏼
**** massive thank you to Our DEAF HUB for helping me decorate & fill these memory boxes ****

Friday 14th Jan, 2022

Today Maggies Stillbirth Legacy made a donation to Royal Blackburn Hospital of:

22 Holy Bibles

10 Illustrated Children’s Bibles

10 Good News Bibles

& copies of The Quran

20 of these bibles were paid for by Nana Pearl 2 months before she died, and 8 were donated by Lucy, the Rose Queen of St Aiden’s Church, Blackburn. These will be used in both Blackburn and Burnley hospital until the new chapel is completed at Burnley

This has been a very emotional day for me, seeing the wonderful Jim Lougheed who did Maggies Naming Ceremony when she was born in Burnley in 2015, and seeing Maggies name in the baby memorial book.

With me today was my baby brother, John. And I rest knowing that Maggie is in the arms of my Grandma and Nana Pearl until her Mummy joins her.

Thursday 2nd December, 2021

Sarah has won another award! This time she has been selected for the Point of Light award, given by the Prime Minister, for raising over £60,000 for the Cuddle Cots project in Maggies name.

Sarah’s award comes during National Grief Awareness week, the annual campaign to raise awareness of the impact of grief and highlight the work of bereavement support services like Maggies Stillbirth Legacy.

Sarah said, “I am honoured and humbled to receive a Point of Light award. All I want to do is help others in Maggies name to keep her memory alive, so this really does mean so much to me.”

Wednesday 17th Nov, 2021

I am proud and humbled to tell you all that today we donated Cuddle Cot number 18!!  18!!!!!

This cot went to Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre in Burnley and will be used not only for the birthing suite but also the NICU. As you all know these cuddle cots enable families to take their babies home so that they can spend a few more days with their angels and create precious memories.

We also donated over £300 of Purple Hearts. These are amazing heartbeat recorders and will be used for the Fetal Medicine Clinic so that parents who find out the devastating news that their baby will not survive can record their heartbeat.

Thank you for all you support to enable us to make this a reality!

November, 2021

After meeting the other nominees at the Pride of Britain awards we have decided to make donations to as many causes as possible. Find out about the others that work tirelessly to raise money across the North of England!

£100 to Katy Jordan. This will buy 100 selection boxes for disadvantaged children, poorly children and children with disabilities in Teesside. They will be delivered by Santa in December to local schools in areas of higher depravation, Children’s wards, Community groups, Children’s homes, Family hostels and Children’s hospices. This will benefit families who face Christmas with very little.

£100 to Mark and his Walking Home for Christmas appeal. Mark was shot through the neck whilst on duty and has since fundraised tirelessly for the armed forces.

£100 to George Kavanagh raising money for St Georges Hospice Grimsby, the hospice that took care of his Dad before he died.

£100 to Donna Varley who fundraises for Martin House Hospice in Leeds. Donnas son, Kaison, grew his angel wings last year. The money she is currently raising goes to buy 120 selection boxes for the hospice so all children who will be having respite there can enjoy a treat along with their families.

Thank you for continuing to support us and allow us to support others.

Tuesday 5th October, 2021

Sarah will be travelling to London at the end of month, with her sister Lizzie and step son Oliver, to attend the glamorous star studded Pride of Britain awards ceremony. We can’t wait to see her pics!

On winning Sarah said “This is the best thing ever to happen, and out of something so horrific as well. The fact that we do what we do, for the angel parents, we don’t do it for recognition. We do it to keep Maggies memory alive and to help them.”

Wednesday 28th July, 2021


This will be donated, along with 20 Follow On Memory Boxes and a wipe clean Moses basket, to a funeral home in Barnoldswick.

This will, as you know, help other families spend time and make memories with their baby/child that has died. This means the world to them as it’s all we have.

Thank you all so much for your continued support and helping us to keep Maggie’s memory alive.

Today we have donated CUDDLE COT NUMBER 16!!

This was donated along with 12 Follow On Memory Boxes and a specialist Moses basket & stand to Talbot Funeral Directors in Roe Lee, Blackburn. Also donated were Angel Gowns, Blankets and Pockets of Love – all made by Jill Moz in memory of her son Christopher.

This is where the head of our family, Grandpa Riley, went on his final journey. So I was very honoured to go and donate in such a positive way.

It was lovely to see Sarah again, who works there, and to share some stories of angel babies & families. This will mean so so much to the families who get to use this cuddle cot to create ever lasting memories that they can treasure forever.

As always, thank you to all for your continued support in helping us to achieve this!

Saturday 10th April, 2021

Today Maggie’s Stillbirth Legacy has donated £100 to Tracey James for a hut she is having made in memory of her daughter CASEY.

“As many of you know I lost 2 of my children due to neonatal deaths. Also, all the way through lockdown, I have scoured and donated lots of food and things for the home for families in need. I can only do this weather permitting, so I would like to get a hut to keep things dry and still give to the community. I want to name it Caseys so that people will remember her and come to her house . . so I can keep my Caseys memory alive.”

An amazing lady who does nothing but help others!!!

Thursday 1st April, 2021

What a lovely place this is. The empathy and passion for what these guys do is fantastic.

I can’t quite believe that in just over 5 years we have achieved what we have, and how many families we are helping on their journey.

Thursday 25th March, 2021

Today we donated 20 Sibling Memory Boxes to The Alty Funeral Service in Blackburn.

These will be given out to siblings of a baby or child who has died so that they can create ever lasting memories. It’s an absolute honour, as always, for me to donate here as they did such a perfect and caring job looking after Maggie. And of course seeing the amazing Caroline.

“Thank you, but all this wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for Sarah Bernasconi Parsons and Maggie’s Stillbirth Legacy Fundraising Page. You, Sarah, are one amazing woman and I’m proud to call you my friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Jade Hudson.

Tuesday 15th December, 2020

Thank you to everyone for your continued support this year. I am genuinely humbled that, even in times of job loss, covid etc, this year you have still bid/bought etc off Maggie’s page.

Again, thank you so much!

Friday 4th December, 2020


Today I donated cuddle cot number 14, and a wipe clean Moses basket & stand to Lancashire Women and Newborn centre in MAGGIE PEARL PARSONS MEMORY.

As you all know our beautiful, perfect Maggie was born sleeping at term here in the butterfly room on 30th June 2015.

Today I entered the Butterfly room with our donation and I wasn’t filled with heartache and fear and sadness. I was filled with over whelming PRIDE!!! This is THE FIRST TIME I have ever felt this feeling in the 5 and a half years we have been fundraising!

It was made so much more amazing in my eyes that Maria Elizabeth, a fantastic lady and now life long friend who did all my training every week for my birthing plan, was there. And so was the amazing Caroline Dolman, who passed me Maggie in theatre when she was born by caesarean, and has been and still is my rock and one of my best mates ever there was.

It was an absolute honour and privilege to do this donation today as it’s what I wanted to do from the moment I had Maggie.

Knowing that families, who do not want to stay at the birthing centre in the bereavement rooms, who want to take their babies home with them until their final farewell, can now do so makes me feel so humble and honoured.

Thank you to the bereavement midwife Kathryn for letting us donate this. It honestly means the world to me.

Thank you to you all for your support – even through the awful year we’ve had in 2020. I could not do any of this without you all.

Wednesday 2nd December, 2020

Today Maggie’s Stillbirth Legacy donated/re-stocked 12 Follow On memory boxes to ALTY’S FUNERAL SERVICE BLACKBURN.

As you all know, Maggie was at Altys and I absolutely love the staff here!! Their professionalism and empathy helped me so much in the early days.

Sunday 29th November, 2020

Thursday 19th November, 2020

Sunday 28th June, 2020
