Roopal Shah

Hello, my name is Roopal, married to Michael. We are mum and dad to 2 sons: Dhillon who was stillborn in 2004 and Sahil born 2 years later.

I remember feeling terrified before we attended our 1st support meeting, only 3 weeks after Dhillon was born but it was the best thing we did. Michael and I both became heavily involved locally in providing peer support to other grieving mums and dads – and I became active working with local healthcare professionals to improve bereavement care but also make sure bereaved parents were offered an opportunity to talk with someone else who had journeyed a similar path.

Watching families we’ve supported growing together brings me so much joy. I want everyone who has experienced pregnancy or infant loss to have access to this support – and am passionate about breaking down the barriers to accessing that support we know still exist in many cultures.

Our People

Hello 👋
My name is Jordan and I am a trustee for Babyloss Support Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. My first born William, was stillborn in 2014. When I heard those words that no parent wishes to hear: “I’m so sorry, there is no heartbeat,” my entire world changed. Since then, I have volunteered as a fundraiser and a peer supporter, and I was honoured when I was asked to be a Trustee for Babyloss Support Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. Alongside my role as Trustee, I also oversee the website and plan to fundraise some more in the near future.
