Ella-Mae Gleed
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Ella-Mae Gleed who was born in United Kingdom on June 08, 2006 and passed away on June 11, 2006 . We will remember her forever.

 Our beautiful little angel was born too early at only 25 weeks & 2 days gestation due to me having severe pre-eclampsia.
In the three short days we shared with her she brought such joy & fond memories.

We miss you so much baby girl, our hearts now have missing links. 
We pray everyday that you are being looked after just as mummy & daddy would have done & you are having fun with all your angel friends.

We are so grateful that you came into our lives, but saddened that you had to leave. Until we meet again princess you are forever in our hearts..

A Child that loses a parent is an orphan,
A Man who loses his wife is a widower,
A Woman who loses her husband is a widow,
There is no name for a parent that loses a child,
For there is no word to describe the pain. 

Ella-mae is going to be a big sister...
"Her little one" is due on 19th May 07!
I am so proud that Ella-Mae has blessed us, & there is no doubt in my mind that she is looking over both of us. Baby Gleed will be born early due to me having a classical cesaerian with Ella-Mae & i am under close scrutiny by the midwives, doctors & consultant.
My "little dink" is my first born & another baby will never take her place... we will carry on her memory as we are so proud of her. She would be so happy that she can look out for her little brother....
Yes, its a boy!!!!

We got our c-sec date today, Rowan will be born on 20th April 07 at 35 wks & 6 days gestation.
Ella-Mae i know that you will be there....
Mummy loves you baby girl.

Sweetie... thankyou for helping little Rowan pull through.
He was such a poorly boy!!
You gave me strength sweetheart .

Now we are home & Rowan knows all about his big sister.
You look so alike precious, so bittersweet.

Yet again precious girl you have blessed us with a little brother for you & for Rowan.

Ashton James Bradley was born by elective c-sec on 21st July 08 at 36wks & 2 days.

You looked over him again sweetpea as he remained in SCBU for 7 days as he swallowed mummy's amniotic fluid & couldn't feed properly.


I am so proud of you my beautiful little girl... i look at your pictures & i see you in Ashton's face... i cry, i miss you so much my special, special girl. My first born, my beautiful little angel.

Her legacy

We had the results of Ella-Maes's postmortem... it showed that she had respitory stress syndrome caused by extreme prematurity, it was pretty inconclusive as she was doing so well. It seems that she just fought too hard for the three precious days we had her.

Premature babies, especially those born at less than 32 weeks of pregnancy and weighing less than 3-1/3 pounds, often develop respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). About 40,000 babies develop RDS each year.

Babies with RDS have immature lungs that lack a chemical mixture called surfactant, which keeps the small air sacs in the lungs from collapsing during breathing. They do not get enough air in and out of their lungs. Since 1990, widespread use of surfactant treatment has greatly reduced the number of babies who die from RDS and has greatly decreased the severity of RDS in survivors. However, about 1,200 babies a year still die in the neonatal period due to RDS

We handed the donations over to NICU & we collected £260. I hope this helps other premature babies in the name of Ella-Mae.
Many thanks to...

All of the cards & presnts are now kept in Ella-Mae's memory box & they give me great comfort as it shows how much she was loved & by so many.

Barrie & i would like to thank all our friends, family & well wishers for giving your support at such a traumatic time for us!
A big thankyou goes to Pat (ella-Mae's chaplain), you made our road a little smoother. You are a great friend to us.
Thankyou to Mr Dyke for your care, compassion & your time.
Thankyou Mr Fraser for caring for me whilst i stayed in Norfolk & Norwich.
Jackie (ella-Mae's nurse), who went "through" it with us... You were our rock!!
Stephanie & Elaine, my two fabulous midwives who taught me how to live again.

I personally would like to thank everybody i have met through SANDS, you have all been a life line for me & with out your support i would find it very difficult to go on.

But most of all i would like to thank my fantastic, beautiful, kind hearted man for giving me such a beautiful daughter. The wonderful memories that we hold dear in our hearts. Without you sweetheart there is no meaning to life. xxxxxx

Its Ella-Mae's estimated due date today... 19.9.06

A very hard day for both Barrie & i. We should have been in the labour suite today... But the best we could do for our little girl was to release some balloons for her at her graveside.
I bought 3 pink balloons from her brothers & wrote on each of them. The boys were not with us to release there own balloons so we did it in their name.
Barrie & i released a baby girl balloon.
Ella-Mae is our little treasure & is always to be remembered.


Ella-Mae's 1st xmas....

With love from Sheryl (SANDS)

My Valentine Girl....  
To our special girl on Valentines Day...

All our love sweetheart...
Mothers Day.....  

Mothers Day for us will be very hard indeed
As we long for our special babies
The ones we did conceive

But we are special Mummy's
Our Angels will agree
They will be wth us on that day
Although we will not see

I often sit and wonder
Well am I still a mummy?
Of course I am and so are you
We grew a special Baby in our tummy

Yes on that day we'll need a hug
Reassurance they are here
But let me tell you special Mummy's
They love us and are near

Love and Hugs to all you special Mummy's

Bex xx 

With Love from Bev Bax,
precious Harvey's mummy xxxx


Mummy & Daddy miss you so much sweetheart...
You are always on our minds & forever in our hearts. xxxx
