Tommy's supporter story by Lewis,
I wanted my story to be shared because I didn’t want people to feel the way I did, I felt for so long that our story was rare, was targeted and we were alone.
After being involved with Tommy's I realised this wasn’t the case, that there were other families, women and men who were exactly the same as us, that these things happen so often and something needs to change, fast.
I found as a man that it was really difficult to share my feelings, especially with other men, so to read some of the inspirational men out there, doing their best to save babies lives, that made me want to stand up and help prevent this happening ever again.
People are amazing, there is no end to the things people will do to help others, I want to be even half as brave as some of you, together we can help future babies.
It’s important to talk and to realise you aren’t alone.
There are times when it all feels like too much, but at those times I think of my daughter, who was such a fighter, and suddenly everything seems more manageable again.
"I truly feel without the support of the EPU and the peace of mind given to us through the Tommy's study we would not be where we are today."
Little Anderson was born under the care of the Tommy's Early Miscarriage Research Centre at London Imperial.
My miscarriage story started in February 2016- it was early, at about 6 weeks and I put it down to one of those things.
