The Miscarriage Association’s ambassadors programme was launched in early 2015, and brings together high-profile supporters to help us raise awareness and reduce the taboo surrounding pregnancy loss. We are delighted to have their support.
English teacher Matthew Burton featured in Channel Four’s series Educating Yorkshire in 2013.
Matthew and his wife experienced a miscarriage on Christmas Eve in 2012, and he has since run the Great Yorkshire Marathon raising funds for the Miscarriage Association, as well as donating his £20,666 winnings from Celebrity Chase in December 2014.
Although that moment of loss will never go away, it’s certainly taught me a few things. Firstly, to talk about it. It helped. Those who knew about it thought they couldn’t say the right things, I’m sure, but every supportive word helps.
