Erica Stewart - Trustee

I have worked supporting bereaved parents and families for over 25 years at Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity) I am also a registered Counsellor.

My own baby, 'Baby Shane' died shortly after birth following major heart surgery 37 years ago. 

This experience and knowledge has given me a greater understanding and insight into the impact that the death of a baby has on families, both personally and professionally. I understand the importance of closure, and the support needed for parents and families who havent been able to say a proper goodbye to their baby, as was the experience of so many long ago bereaved families.
