Our boxes contain items that we feel could be of meaningful use to parents who have suffered the loss of a baby, before during and after birth.

 

 Memories From Isla Boxes

 

Our boxes contain:

 

Hand and footprint card - This is to allow parents to record hand and footprints of their baby.

 

Guess how much I love you storybook - It is sometimes difficult to find the words to say to a baby, once it has died, and so we have included this storybook to help parents and give them an opportunity to interact with their baby.

 

Camera - Although it may seem strange to take photographs of a baby that has died, it maybe the only photograph that a parent may ever see of their child and so we include a camera to encourage parents to take photographs.

 

Matching teddy bears - Within our boxes are a pair of identical teddies, we feel that its a comfort for one to be placed with baby and the other to be kept within the box.

 

Candle - This is for parents to light in memory of their baby on such things as anniversaries and special dates throughout the following years, the candle is placed within a glass holder so can be replaced if wished.

 

Keepsake Box - It may be possible to have such keepsakes like a lock of hair or cot band and so this box keeps it separate and protected from other contents of the box.

 

Notebook and Pen - When parents suffer a loss so much information is spoken to them and it must be impossible for them to remember anything let alone everything, so this notebook can be helpful for them to jot down and record details that they can read through at another time.

 

Memory Folder -This is to record special details about baby, such as weight, height etc

 

Caring Booklet - This is a booklet that has been written by a bereaved parent and contains valuable information regarding all aspects surrounding the death of a baby, such things as funerals and financial help.

 

Bereavment Kits

In August 2014 after consultation with hospitals and parents we created our Bereavment Kits. they contain iteams that can be addede to our memory boxes or given alone if needed. We dont add these things to our memory boxes as they may not be right for every family as every situation is unique.

 

Our Kits contain

 

Clothing and blankets for babies as small as 1lb that are not readily available in shops. 

 

Clay hand impression kits

 

Certificate box for babies born before 24 weeks. Hospitals often give a certificate of life for those who cannot register babies birth. This nice box make that feel more special. 

 

Scan photo frames for early loss

 

Hooded towel and baby bath to enable parents to bath baby and keep the towel.
