No matter how young, no matter how small, neonatal death is devastating. Understand more about newborn death.




Has your child suffered neonatal death or do you know someone who has been affected by this?

My deepest condolences go out to you for your absolutely devastating loss.

Do you feel like no-one truly understands what it’s like to have a child who only lives for a few hours or days and then is tragically taken from you?

Do you feel totally heartbroken to have carried a baby through a complete pregnancy with the promise of life ahead and then have that life cut so tragically short?

Perhaps you wish someone could just help you and reach out to you with understanding and empathy.

If this sounds even a little like you then please pay close attention to my next few words, because I want you to know that we are here to help you.

Hi, my name is Hafizah Ismail.


I am the founder of Children of Jannah.


If you feel like no-one understands the pain of losing a child so young, the grief you are going through, the mourning for your new-born child, I can relate to that. My family suffered the devastating loss of a young child and I know how traumatic and utterly devastating that loss can be.

After the death of my nephew, I sensed that there were many parents out there consumed in their grief but with no-one to help them or support them appropriately. That they were surrounded only by a lack of understanding and awkward conversations, well-meaning but insensitive comments. I didn’t know how to tackle this problem and provide them with the support and relief that they so desperately needed but I knew it had to be done.
The problem was that the media and all of my friends and the community around me always said that grief was something personal; that we should leave people alone to get over their loss and that in time, things would get easier; that bereaved parents may even ‘get over it’. And this seemed to be the sentiment surrounding the death of an infant particularly - there was so much sympathy but it was clumsily delivered, based upon ignorance and well-meaning platitudes – but words and actions which really did nothing to support the bereaved parent properly.
Did you know that around 500 babies die soon after birth, each year in the UK?  Sadly, you are not alone in the heartbreak that you have suffered and this tragedy is still far more common than many of us realise.
When your new-born baby dies, it is so shocking and so devastating. The turning wave of emotion from joy to sadness, the relentless, stark reality of your loss.  The world stops and it feels like you want to get off but you can’t see how. There is a feeling of absolute and utter hopelessness. We know this and this is why we want to help you understand neonatal death and how you can learn to find life again after your tragic loss.
Over the next few minutes I’m going to reveal how we can help you and grieving parents just like you. You will discover that there is the possibility of a life ahead where the pain doesn’t consume in every single minute. You will find that there are people here that can understand and empathise with you and what you have been through, without judgement.  And you will see that life after loss, when you are ready, is a journey that you can take. I will show you how you can make that first step on your journey today.
The information I am going to share with you can change your life. It can give you a life again after the death of your much longed for baby – a life that doesn’t forget them but a life that honours their life and always remembers them with hope.
This is something that you owe to yourself and to your child, to act upon now, for them and for you. Because for every moment that goes past without the right support in place for you, without someone to talk to who truly understands the loss of your son or daughter, is a moment too long in pain.
The pain you have suffered is awful and your heart has been shattered.  Your baby was your baby and this wasn’t ‘meant’ to happen. They were meant to live, to come home and be with you and now there is nothing - and you feel numb but at the same time, consumed with pain.  
And this pain you are feeling – you don’t deserve it, no matter how natural a reaction it is. But you need to consider - what if this pain doesn’t go away – ever? What if its consuming nature always haunts you? A grief that you can’t process. Loss that you can never learn to cope with. A future that never moves forward. Even though it may seem hard now, impossible even, if you don’t take action now, if you don’t allow us to help you – this exhausting future may be what you are facing.

Instead, we are saying that we can help you accept the life and death of your child so that you can manage your loss and your grief.

For each of these people who reach out to us, we reach back and we are with them, every day that they need us, there is no timeframe.  
I also get told “I don’t need to read about my child’s death, I was there, I felt it.” But the reality is that fully accepting the death of your child means understanding your loss.
