My first child was stillborn due to not getting to hospital in time after complications. My second child I miscarried at 8 and a half weeks.

I felt lucky as I managed to stay at home and could clearly see my baby come out and was so tiny and perfectly formed, I buried them with my first child. I then went on to have my beautiful daughter Lia who is 19 months old.

Just before Christmas I lost my fourth child at just over 11 weeks.

It was awful, I couldn't stop bleeding and was rushed to A&E. After nearly fainting in waiting room and having a procedure where they remove as much as they can manually,  I still had to go to theatre and be 'cleared out.'

I requested to get my baby back so I could bury them with my other two. It didn't feel right they were somewhere different. I love all my children and miss the three who aren't with me dearly xxxxx
