The Margot dress is a special one, for many reasons. As well as being easy to wear on any occasion, beautifully soft and cut to a flattering shape the Margot is named after a very special angel.
Laura, a great friend who I firstly travelled to India with to source fabrics devastatingly lost her baby girl Margot in 2020 at just three days old and this dress is named after her.
"Our darling daughter Margot was just three days old when we said goodbye to her in Bristol NICU after she suffered a hypoxic brain injury after her delivery in May 2020.Margot was/is our first born and the grief of losing her is something that consumed me and took me to a very dark place, and I don’t know what I’d have done without the support of Petals charity.
Petals is a charity that specialises in supporting parents who have experienced mental health issues as a result of bereavement, trauma or loss related to pregnancy including miscarriage, still birth, termination for medical reasons (TFMR) and neonatal loss.
Baby loss is frequently devastating for couples who are trying to navigate their journey and the lack of acknowledgment within the healthcare pathway effectively abandons patients to cope with complex grief unsupported and isolated, so the support that Petals offers is invaluable."
CLEMENTINE has chosen to donate 5% of each sale of The Margot dress to Petals, this means that every penny raised by your support goes directly to supporting parents when they need it the most. Petals appreciate every donation and work hard to ensure it is used wisely to support as many as possible.
