As Cherished Forever is a charity which was created to ease the grieving process of those who have lost very young children, there is no charge for our services, but we are grateful for all donations. Please see Contact us if you would like us to send you a box directly.
Memory boxes contain:
• Matching teddies, one for the baby and one for the parents
• Hand-knitted/crocheted blanket and hat
• Forget-me-not seeds
• Support literature
• Disposable camera/SD card for precious photos
Parents should be offered a memory box at hospital by the midwives/nurses, who will take photographs and hand and footprints. There will be a choice of pink, blue or beige boxes, and by emailing us here we can send you vinyl lettering to personalise the box with your child’s name if you wish.
You will also have the option to have a silver keepsake made, in which case you will need to contact us to discuss what you would like. We will make your keepsake from the hand and foot ink prints, so all you will have to do is post or email them to us. Once we have received them your keepsake will be with you in approximately 28 days. We currently supply the West Midlands Southern network of hospitals, but hope to expand across the country.
If you are a hospital, or have recently received care at a hospital which we do not currently supply, and you are
interested in our boxes please Contact Us for more information.
