Medium Simpson’s Memory Box Appeal (SiMBA) memory box, containing 2 knitted teddies, candle, 2 butterfly charms, wooden star, photo folder with SD card, Just to Say card, birth acknowledgement certificate, notebook with pen, letter from another parent, inkless hand and footprint certificate, clay imprint kit, baby wash, knitted blanket, 2 Touched By You blankets, and knitted butterfly, given to people who experience pregnancy loss in the second trimester, UK

Memory boxes like this one, made by SiMBA, empower families to make memories and give them something tangible to hold on to after pregnancy loss.

This box is specially designed to be appropriate for pregnancy loss from around 14 weeks to around 24 weeks gestation. SiMBA have small, medium, and large boxes which are each tailored for a specific stage of pregnancy. Every box is put together by a SiMBA volunteer and objects like the teddies are even hand knitted. There is a birth acknowledgement certificate in all the boxes. In the UK, pregnancy loss is not registered until after 24 weeks gestation. Including this certificate in the boxes gives bereaved parents some written recognition of what they have experienced and what they have lost. The medium and large box also contain objects like baby wash that give parents the opportunity to do some of the everyday activities they may have imagined doing with their baby.

SiMBA was established in 2005. Initially, they only made memory boxes for Simpson’s Centre for Reproductive Health at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, but their work soon spread nationwide. SiMBA also fundraise to create and refurbish bereavement rooms. These give parents who are experiencing pregnancy loss a specialised space separate from a main maternity unit to give birth and spend time together as a family in private.
