Roxanne has recently hosted an EPTea party. She made it look so beautiful and even made some lovely purple tulip biscuits. Roxanne has only very recently experienced an ectopic pregnancy. She held the party to gather friends and family together to gain support and enable her to raise awareness. We are so grateful to Roxanne for hosting this EPTea party and raising lots of money (currently at £280 and rising!) and awareness.
My EPTea party went really well, I had it at my home and we had sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee. My friends and family were brilliant they came and donated and chatted, there were a few tears but was good to make them aware of the trust and explaining my experience and hopefully looking positively to the future.
The reason I did an EPTea party was because in February I unfortunately had an ectopic pregnancy. I was 2 months pregnant and was rushed into hospital, I had emergency scans and was taking straight to theatre for emergency surgery. I had complete internal bleeding, my right Fallopian tube ruptured, we lost our baby and I almost lost my own life. They removed my right Fallopian tube and right ovary, but left my left side unharmed so we can hopefully get pregnant in the near future.
I have had support from the ectopic pregnancy trust, from helping me and my partner cope, to getting advice what I can and can’t do, forums and stories from other ladies that have gone through this.
We wanted to raise some money for this trust which has now become close to our hearts 💜
