The Happy Pregnancy Hearts was a charity project that ran in 2018 and 2019.
A range of typewriter artworks went on sale and 100% of profits made went directly to the new midwife-led birthing unit at Warwick Hospital, The Bluebell Centre.
40 unique heart-shaped wooden artworks (one for each week of a woman’s inspirational 40-week journey through pregnancy) featured motivational and inspirational quotes. Each piece was made made using real flowers kindly donated by local Warwick florist Green and Wild and quotes hand-typed on an antique 1950s typewriter.
100% of the profit from each piece was deposited by myself directly into my personal Just Giving page which (along with generous donations from my friends and family) raised £745.
Thanks to everyone for their support and for raising so much money for such an amazing new facility!
