This book celebrates the impact and explores the legacy of the Still Parents Programme and Exhibition. It features the inspirational artwork created by the Still Parents project participants as well as highlights works from the Whitworth’s extensive collection chosen by them.

Still Parents is the Whitworth’s ongoing programme to support parents who have experienced the loss of a baby in pregnancy or just after birth, in partnership with Manchester Sands (Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Charity). Under the guidance of professional artists, a monthly workshop programme encourages participants to collectively explore their experience of baby loss through art and creativity.

The Still Parents: Life After Baby Loss exhibition, the first of its kind, ran at the Whitworth from September 2021 – December 2022 creating a platform to share personal stories, open up conversations and help to break the silence that continues to surround baby loss.

All the proceeds from the sales of this book go directly back into funding the ongoing Still Parents workshop programme. Your support helps more bereaved parents access these powerful workshops.

    Still Parents: Life after Baby Loss

    My little boy's name is included in this book. It means everything to me. It is hard to be open about a subject so many people stay quiet about, (until this exhibition, me included) but I feel so proud to see him represented.

    I hope, for anyone who has to rebuild themselves after this devastation, that they do not have to do it alone, in silence. Because of this exhibition and this book. I hope, for those who know someone in this pain, that the quotes and poems in these pages help you know what to say because it is hard to understand and to reach someone in this awful isolation.

    I hope for every family involved in the making of this book, there are countless others who benefit from it and as a result, we can acknowledge the lost babies and reassure the mums and dads that they are STILL PARENTS.
