Supporting Emma and Paul Newlands through what must be the hardest time in their lives.

Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty

Emma and Paul Newlands have gone through the most tragic event of their lives.

Emma and Paul sadly lost their new born baby, Reuben close to 22 hours after his birth on the 19th of April 2022. Reuben was born at 2.35pm on the 19th of April via emergency C section in Tauranga hospital. The journey to conceive Reuben in the first place has been a very challenging road for the couple and he was the precious outcome of IVF.

We would like to support them to be able to take the financial stress away from Emma and Paul if (and when) they are ready to try for a baby again.

The mental, physical and emotional stress that comes with IVF is just unimaginable - let alone, dealing with the loss of Reuben in these first few months and years.

Absolutely no pressure, spare what you can, to show we are all supporting them in this ongoing journey.

Little Reuben will never be forgotten and Emma and Paul are enormously proud of their little boy being the true fighter he was.

Please have Emma, Paul and Reuben in your thoughts during this challenging time.

We are SO close at getting them 2x rounds with a goal of 30K. Reuben will never be forgotten among his potential brother or sister one day ♥️❤️
