  • My Story

In October last year I went for my 19 week scan. I skipped out of the office giddy that I would be seeing my baby. In my previous pregnancy I had been nervous for the scans but I chose this time to relax and enjoy it. During the scan the sonographer touched my arm and said "I have noticed something". My world crumbled around me instantly. A further scan with the consultant revealed a severe brain and heart abnormality. We were absolutely devastated. We had to end the pregnancy.

A horrendous few days followed including the labour and birth of our baby girl Piper. There are so many things about the process you hope you would never have to learn. The ARC information booklet we were given in the hospital was extremely useful. It answered nearly all of our queries without us having to ask. 

In recent months I have reached out to ARC for support and although they are only a small charity, they have been able to help immensely. No one wants to be in this awful situation and make the difficult decisions we had to. However it has been of great comfort to speak to others who have gone through it too and ARC helped me do this.

So I am running the great womens 10k in Glasgow this June. I am running for my own physical and mental health. I am running to remember the baby girl we lost. I am running to raise money for this wonderful charity who have been there for us.

Thank you x
