A BRAVE couple who lost their baby visited Worcestershire Royal Hospital neonatal unit on Mother’s Day weekend to bring gifts of joy.

Charlotte and Richard Sharratt, form Bromsgrove run a charity ‘Libby Mae’s Little Angels,’ which funds medical equipment needed to look after babies on neonatal units. The charity is named after their daughter Libby who was born with a heart condition in 2013 and only lived for two weeks after being put in intensive care.

The couple visited neonatal units on Saturday giving out gifts to babies and comforting parents.

Mrs Sharratt, aged 38, said it was an emotional day for them.

“We normally go on Mother’s Day but we decided to go on the Saturday this year, because we have a three-year-old, Riley. It was still really hard, we always find it really hard this time of year because we should have our two children with us.”

“It’s hard because we really sympathize with the parents, because we know exactly what they’re going through and it’s absolutely horrible, you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy.”

Riley also visits the Neonatal units with his mum and dad.

Mrs Sharratt said he loves seeing all the babies and the nurses.

The Sharratts, from Bromsgrove, also visited Birmingham Women’s Hospital, Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, and Good Hope Hospital, Sutton Coalfield.

Mrs Sharratt, who works full time running the charity, said her and her husband Richard, 36 aim, to give parents of special care babies hope. “We had great response from parents and from social media. Every single response made me cry. “

“It’s nice to know that in Libby’s short life, she’s been able to bring joy to people faced with similar circumstances to us.”
