Large 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 foot print certificate, clay imprint kit, baby wash, knitted blanket, 2 Touched By You blankets, knitted butterfly, nappy, brush set, and wisp of hair box, given to people who experience pregnancy loss in the third trimester or neonatal baby loss, 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 24 weeks gestation to neonatal death. 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. The medium and large box also contain objects like baby wash and a nappy 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.
