About our Poster
I created this poster to help raise funds for The Sick Children's Trust and Tiny Lives - charities which helped us and our son Charlie when he was born 9 weeks early.
Charlie was born weighing just 2lbs 6oz (a bag of sugar) when I had an eclamptic fit. We were both lucky to survive. Charlie then went on to suffer Necrotising Enterocolitis at just 8 days old. After 2 major operations, where each time we were asked to say our goodbyes, again he beat the odds and survived. We spent 4 months at the RVI in Newcastle.
During this time we stayed in onsite accommodation provided by The Sick Children's Trust. It is heartbreaking not to be able to take your baby home. This way we were at least close enough to be with him as much as possible. Tiny Lives provided us with essential equipment that helped Charlie. They gave us each a mini boo which is more than a comforter, it helps the bond between mother and baby when you can't cuddle, kiss and feed your baby like you normally would. They gave Charlie a nest and incubator cover to help recreate the snug feeling of a womb.
Both charities help so many families going through, what is probably, the hardest time of their lives. I wanted a way to say thank you.
I have always been a huge believer in the power of Yoga and meditation. I love how it makes you feel and Charlie enjoys it too. This is why I chose to make a simple poster to try and encourage toddlers to give it a go! I am not a yoga teacher but the poses have been approved by a qualified yoga instructor. The A2 poster features beautiful original artwork with simple explanations on each pose.
We really hope you enjoy it!
Anna, Mark & Charlie xx
