Bonnie Carter

2020 - Fundraising Activities, Advocacy and Organised Community Events

Bonnie has undertaken significant fundraising activities, advocacy and organised community events to provide support for bereaved families.

Following her own experiences with pregnancy loss and stillbirth, Bonnie fundraised and managed the design of a new suite at the Canberra Hospital Foetal Medicine Unit Bereavement suite. Her work is allowing parents to process devastating news in a room filled with love and warmth. She also organises events to raise money to ensure the Bears of Hope initiative has coverage in the ACT, which provides opportunities for bereaved mothers to connect, reducing feelings of isolation. Among many advocacy and awareness initiatives, Bonnie provided evidence to the 2018 Senate Inquiry into Stillbirth Research and Education.
