Baby Blake

Baby Blake was born at 10.14pm on Friday 21st June, he weighed 5lb 12oz and was absolutely bloody beautiful, he looked perfect and was the image of Travis when he was born.

All was well until the last few minutes of delivery when his heart rate suddenly dropped, the doctors tried so so hard to help him but his heart rate wouldn’t return, we had the whole neonatal team in our room. We heard one of them saying ‘what a beautiful baby’ and they were all┬ádevastated that they couldn’t save him.

We are beyond beyond gutted as you can imagine, we didn’t expect him to go so soon or because of his heart, his heart was always so strong, life is so cruel.

Thank you for following his journey and for helping us to stay positive throughout what has been the most difficult time, we will never forget our dear sweet boy.
