A Scots baby loss charity is under threat of closure because it can no longer pay its bills. SiMBA is a lifeline to bereaved families who have lost babies but the charity is being hit by spiralling costs.

Since opening 18 years ago the organisation has been giving support to women and families in Edinburgh and Lothians from their office in Dalkeith.

But their services could come to an end in as little as three months.The charity has made a plea for "donations and fundraising" and has urged people to share their work so they can try and survive this "critical period" where they are struggling to make ends meet.

The charity provides memory boxes to break the stigma round miscarriages, stillbirths and neonatal deaths. The boxes are donated to hospitals across the UK and Ireland and contains many items like teddies, blankets and pictures.Design company director Sara Kermode, 35, from Bonnyrigg, spoke to Edinburgh Live about the amazing work the charity does to support people.
