Natalie Ives started this petition to UK Parliament

My name is Natalie. Two years ago I had beautiful identical twin boys at 31 weeks via emergency cesarean section. Sam weighing 2lb 8oz and Connor weighing 3lb 14oz. They were beyond perfect! Born on 22~09~17. Sadly our Connor died on 29~09~17. 

I can't even two years on describe the agonising, gut wrenching pain. Then straight away we had to find money and fast! I'm nit talking a few hundred pounds you could possibly borrow either. 

It's a legal requirement to have a funeral which like any parent you want to be able to give your child the very best. Sadly finances wouldn't allow us any of that. Two years on our Connor doesn't have a headstone. Many children and babies across the country don't. 

Well I think it's time to change that. No matter what your financial situation is every single baby and child should have a headstone! 

I was fortunate enough to be part of an amazing support group called MGF (mummies Gin Fund) where everyone chipped in what they could on a GoFundMe page to bury Connor. 

However the price of even a basic headstone is astronomical. MP's are in driven around in Bentleys to their second homes whilst babies and children dont even have a headstone to say who they are. 

It kills me not being able to provide my son with a headstone. I'm his mummy I should be able to give him the only thing that'll ever belong to him. I'm one of thousands who feel like this every single day. It's not right. It's not fair. The tremendous guilt that my little baby is in heaven without me is bad enough. But hey why dont you lose any pride you have left and beg strangers for help with a grave and headstone.

You have the power to change this. Bot just for me and Connor but for ALL past and future Angel's. So parliament I'm asking that you do the right thing by all of our under 18's. Give us the means to ensure each and every child has a name. That they are seen along with the other children and babies. Help ease the suffering we all endure. I'm not asking for marble headstones covered in diamonds. I'm asking that we dont have to spend 10 years trying to save enough money for a headstone. I'm asking for help! 

In honour of Connor George Ives and every single baby and child who have been taken too soon. 

Give them a memorial. Give them a headstone. Give them respect!
