Oakley’s Gift supports bereaved parents after the loss of a baby at any gestation. We liaise with hospitals and discover areas where there is opportunity to help parents. In order to do this we fundraise all year round to ensure we can help as many families as possible.


about Oakley

On the 29.11.18 little Oakley was born via emergency caesarean. He was whisked away to the neonatal intensive care unit as he had unfortunately inhaled meconium. Oakley was resuscitated for 16 minutes and had a team of doctors from a specialist hospital try to help him.

We saw him two hours after he was born, he was hooked up to a series of machines. We were told that he needed transferring to Addenbrookes as they had the facilities needed to help save him. Unfortunately he was too unwell to make the journey and they suspected he would have a cardiac arrest very soon so they managed to get me into a wheelchair to go and see him to hold him for the first time.

Oakley died in my arms surrounded by his loved ones. A post mortem report confirmed his death was a result of meconium aspiration syndrome, bronchopnuemonia as result of chorioamnionitis.
