If you are in a neonatal unit and you see a purple butterfly, be very careful and measure your words, you could cause great emotional damage. Here we explain why.
A complication in the twin pregnancy of the couple Lewis and Millie Smith, led to doctors to make a really hard decision, they said that they could only save one of the children.
Although they did not cease to feel great pain for their loss, the joy for the new member of the family also was present.
Once, the couple was in neonatal care, waiting for their son, someone in the room uttered a harsh sentence, but without malice.
Ignorant of the situation of the Smiths, someone said "how good they were not twins". Immediately, Mellie began to cry.
In order to avoid this kind of hurtful indiscretions, the campaign "The Skye High Foundation" was created, represented by the logo of the purple butterfly.
With a presence in every hospital in the world, it "represents a baby who was part of a multiple pregnancy but from which, sadly, not all babies survived."
Pay close attention to your surroundings, knowing this information and refraining from making comments out of place, could avoid great pain to another family.
