A MUM who lost her baby before he was born has raised money for the charity which helped her through the tragedy.

Sam, 24, was about to give birth to their first child, a boy they named Cody, three years ago.

She was overwhelmed by the support of midwives at Basildon Hospital and its Forget-Me-Not bereavement suite.

Sam and her partner Lee Grant now want to raise as much money as they can for the service. A fun day for Cody was held at Bowers Football Club on Sunday to help raise funds.
