We are first time parents, Aimee & Ryan Conroy who have set up our newly registered charity in memory of our beautiful daughter, Luna Valentina Conroy who was born sleeping on the 29/11/2017 at home under her Christmas tree.
“Our charity Luna’s Fund stands for ‘Love & Unity for Neonates & Stillborns.'”
As a result of our experience, we felt compelled to embrace upon a new journey, something we could channel all of our love and energy into on behalf of our Luna. ☁️💛
Luna’s Fund launched on 1st March 2018, a charity designed to help future bereaved parents through immediate support as we felt there was an uncomfortable lack of aftercare on offer.
Our charity’s aim is to offer an array of services for families to use, in order to create new memories & to look forward to their future, their ‘new normal.’ We have constructed these ideas based on our own experience of what we would have loved to have been offered at the time; a lifeline. ✨
We hope our services can soften the grieving process.
Examples of our services: 💫
• Redecoration of the baby’s nursery for parents who choose that this room is too painful for them to endure daily; to restore the room to its original/alternative use
• A relaxing getaway to help both the mind recovering from trauma and the body recovering from labour allowing parents to have some time out to process what has happened
• Food hamper deliveries to help reduce the lack of appetite whilst promoting nutritional goodness; to offer comfort through small luxuries and to allow the family to avoid facing the reality of grocery shopping and social environments in the early stages
The long term goal for Luna’s Fund is to open a safe haven retreat for families to enjoy, to grieve and to create new memories; one being in the UK, ‘Luna’s Lodge’ & the other being in the sun, ‘Luna’s Legacy’. 💜
Registered charity number: 1184371.
