I'm 13 & raising funds and awareness for baby loss on a Harley because it's loud and impossible to ignore - just like baby loss should be

Hi, I'm Krystal. I'm 13 years old.

I lost my brother Alexander (born at 32 weeks), my sister Ailsa (born at 24 weeks) and my cousin Kovii (6 days old).

Baby loss effects one in four pregnancies. There needs to be more support for Mums, Dads, sisters and brothers who have lost their babies.

Baby Loss Awareness week runs from 9-15 October. I want to help raise awareness of baby loss and get people talking about it and talking about their babies this October.

Sands supports people after they lose a baby and I'll be donating any money raised to them.

One of the things that makes me most upset about the babies I have lost is the things they'll never get to do.

One of my favourite things is going on the back of my Dad's Harley. It's something these babies will never get to do so I'm going to take them on a ride with me and my Dad.

My Dad's Harley is loud and impossible to ignore - just like baby loss should be.

The details:

Every donation will add another ribbon to my jacket. If you would like us to write your babies name on the ribbon please include their name in your donation. On Saturday 17 October I will put my jacket with the ribbons on, read out all the names of the babies I'll be riding with and for and head out for the ride they never got to do.

We'll be leaving from Birkenhead, Auckland and you're welcome to tie on a ribbon and come along too.

Posted by: Catherine Goodwin

Firstly, we're so sorry for your loss. Your tributes to your beautiful babies have made me and Krystal shed many tears over the past day.

We have more than 50 babies coming in spirit with us on the ride already and Krystal has been working this afternoon and evening to make ribbons for each angel baby.

Thank you for all your donations already - we've already exceeded our target in one day so we're going to raise it.

I have also lost two of my babies. 1st a daughter named Taylor at 38wks and 2nd a son named Patrick at 19wks. Time lessens the pain but it never fully goes away. It feels like yesterday these babies were taken from me and I had to leave the hospital with empty arms. So I can honestly say I feel your pain. Kia kaha. 💋
