"Through personal experience I understand the importance of having a sympathetic environment in which to begin the grieving process" - Annika, Chair
The Last Kiss Foundation was formally registered as a charity in 2015, and was founded by Annika Palmer. Annika was determined to provide an avenue for bereaved families to be supported during their time in hospital after experiencing a miscarriage, stillbirth, or premature loss of their baby. Her mission is driven by personal experiences, and having felt this unique kind of grief, she understands the importance of providing equipment, personalised support, and your own time to grieve.
The Last Kiss Foundation supports families impacted by baby loss. Part of this is done through helping to provide specialist equipment such as AbiCots and CuddleCots, which enables families to have time to say goodbye. The charity also contributes to midwife training and appreciates the significance of helping with the entire process of healing. With miscarriages and still births being very sensitive areas, The Last Kiss Foundation hopes to change overall perceptions of what this experience means for those affected.
