The “Memory Box” is a treasure chest of mementos such as “the blanket of love”, birth acknowledgement certificate, hand and foot prints and in some cases photos. The Memory Box was introduced to Simpson’s Centre for Reproductive Health in Edinburgh as the result of a donation from a bereaved parent. It has since given comfort to many parents through difficult times.
SiMBA has recently started providing smaller Memory Boxes for those born too early. The smaller boxes are to show that even a tiny baby deserves recognition.
SiMBA aims to provide the precious Memory Box to any Maternity Unit which wishes to have them, as we believe that anyone who suffers the loss of a baby deserves the simple, but precious box.
SiMBA through direct contact, conferences, word of mouth have now introduced our Memory Boxes throughout Scotland, England and Wales from the largest of maternity and neonatal units to the very smallest of hospitals making sure no parent ever goes without. SiMBA also gift them individually to parents upon request.
