She now hopes it will help women across the city.

Jennifer told the YEP: "I have raised money for a lending library for the LGI to use for women in the baby loss bereavement clinic.

"Evidence shows that after loss, women are comforted by stories of others going through similar scenarios.

"This was presented at the clinic this week with some care packages and baby grows."

Jennifer has also written her own book which will be inside the library.

She added: "One of the books is written by myself.

"Baby Brain is a semi autobiographical book around 20 years of issues involving baby loss and how I have overcome adversities to now have almost finished my masters in public health."
