Sophie and Max have been incredible in their fundraising and raising awareness for us at the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust which will hugely enable us to carry on supporting women, their families and the medical profession that look after them. Sophie and Max have had a heartbreaking year dealing with losses both physically and emotionally and as ever with all our women, their partners and families are hearts go out to them and we are always here to support in whatever way we can.
Sophie and Max have raised an an amazing £1,000 by taking part in what looked like a great 10k race encountering over 40 obstacles, they smashed it and came 52nd out of over 160 plus. Thank you both so much and here are a few words from Sophie about why they decided to take on this challenge.
‘A few months after my surgery it hit me again that we lost another baby, I wanted for someone to tell me why but I knew that would never come. I trawled the internet for hours looking at endless research and studies but obviously didn’t much find much. Although I thank my surgeons everyday the aftercare was pretty much non existent – both physically and emotionally.
Through all my internet exploring I found The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. They gave me the answers about physical things that would happen to me after the surgery, I stopped worrying that every niggle or ache didn’t mean I was dying and in fact it was normal. Emotionally, it helped me to understand that it was okay not to be okay. And although it’s a small % of what I had experienced, I wasn’t the only one.
I’d like to raise something to keep the Trust going. It certainly helped me and I hope it can for others too’
