Our Story

The TeddyRose Foundation was founded in September 2018 in memory of our children, Teddy & Rose White. Teddy was born at 21 weeks old in May 2017, he passed away in our arms 4 hours later. Rose was born sleeping at 41 weeks old in September 2018.

No family should have to suffer the devastation of losing a child. Trying to carry on and live a ‘normal’ life is the hardest thing for us, as our life has changed forever. We can never go back to the ‘old us’, before we were bereaved parents. It is like living two lives, the before and after. Always trying to adapt to a ‘new normal’.

Not forgetting the impact it has had on Teddy and Rose’s siblings – Lily, Harry, Henry & Poppy. They have really suffered too. Not only have they lost a brother and a sister, they have witnessed first hand the impact it has had on us, their parents.

The main reasons for setting up the charity was to do something positive in Teddy & Rose’s memory and to help support other families at their most difficult time after sadly losing a baby

Since setting up the charity, we have supported over 300 families and are proud to be supporting 10 hospital bereavement units in the Midlands.
