Gemma Kybert

As a Nursery Manager, Early Years Teacher, Youth worker and private Nanny my whole world was focused around children and young people.

As a family we were foster carers and this supported my work around behaviour management and safeguarding vulnerable children.

I set up Oscar’s Wish Foundation after I tragically lost my first born son in November 2014. As an Early Years Teacher and College lecturer it became increasingly difficult to maintain teaching the subject (covering conception and birth) whilst working through my own grief. I chose to turn my grief journey into exploring how to support other parents who lose their precious baby, my future and their dreams and ensuring Oscar’s life wasn’t in vain- the charity was launched.

Support families locally through out Sussex and the UK. We aim to provide support from day one and work along side the local hospitals and bereavement midwives, providing much needed therapy and counselling and online support. Parents often join our online support groups which offer them the option of support in future pregnancies too. WE are creating a holistic wholesome support network to wrap our arms of care around parents and families at their most vulnerable times.
