A HEARTBROKEN couple whose son was stillborn are raising money for the hospital that has been supporting them during their grief.

Parker Michael Ohmes was stillborn at Royal Bolton Hospital on Friday, November 8, just three days after parents Stuart Ohmes, 23, and Chloe Holland, 21, found out the tragic news that he no longer had a heartbeat.

Now the couple, who are from Wigan, have set up a gofundme to raise money for other parents going through similar anguish.

The fundraiser, which has a timeless target of £1,000, will see the couple buy things and donate them, a preference of the hospital.

Stuart said: "It's to raise awareness for future stillborns. We're hoping to go out and buy things for stillborn families, like blankets, gift boxes and even put money towards a cold cot.

He added that the hospital has been extremely supportive over the past few weeks, providing home visits and welfare checks.

During their time with Parker, the hospital also worked tirelessly to help them feel as comfortable as possible.

Stuart added: "They offered us loads of stuff. They gave us clothes for Parker, memory boxes and arranged to have photos taken. They let us stay with him for as long as we wanted, so we stayed the full weekend."

In addition to the gifts and care, the family were allowed to stay in the 'butterfly room'- a room specially designed to resemble the comfort and familiarity of a home, including beds and a living room."

Stuart said that the funeral was "perfect" and that Parker was sent to "fly super high with the angels."

The family are currently waiting to receive the post-mortem results.
