The news of a pregnancy or a recent birth is an exciting time for all prospective and existing parents. It can, however, be cruelly interrupted by the news of a cancer diagnosis and the worry that this brings to both you and your wider family.
Mummy’s Star has been set up specifically to offer support if you find yourself in this situation and we hope that by providing comprehensive information and links in this section, it will help you to get the support you need, access services that are available to you but most importantly know that you are not alone when you are going through this.
The information contained here is reviewed on an ongoing basis and will also be added to as new information becomes known about cancer in pregnancy. Likewise, as we receive more enquiries, we will add to the FAQs section in order to be able to try and answer as many of your questions in one place as possible.
Please contact us here and we can discuss more specifically how we can support you and your family.
Treat a mum to a ‘hug in the post’ by purchasing a gift from our Amazon Wish List to help lift her spirits during this difficult time. You choose a gift and buy it, then Amazon send it to us, to send out to a mum who is struggling at the moment, especially now we are back in lockdown and in the run up to Christmas.
Please click here to see our Wish List amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist and don’t forget to check you change the address from your default!
These beautiful necklaces have been designed as a thank you to Mummy’s Star for ‘the much-needed practical and emotional support they gave to my family during a very difficult time.'
The star is a tribute to Mummy’s Star and the hoop represents the circle of life and hope. Each one is made by hand and the star can be personalised with initials or left plain.
Each Mummy’s Star pendant is made from sterling silver and all the profits are being donated to us.
This Christmas we are doing things a bit differently and we would love you to get involved.
