After my second missed miscarriage in 2017, which came as a particular shock following a healthy scan and visible heartbeat at 8 weeks, I was in a really bad place. I was extremely anxious about the heartache of trying for a baby and potentially suffering another miscarriage, not to mention struggling to come to terms our loss. I approached Petals for help and was surprised with the speed of their response. I felt valued, comforted and supported, and my counselling sessions had a profoundly positive impact on my mental health. I was so lucky to have been given the help I needed, so I am running to help ensure Petals is able to support other parents in need.
