AFTER losing her baby and suffering the trauma of an ectopic pregnancy, a mum is walking 50 miles to raise awareness of the condition.

In June, Katie Rogers lost her baby at 12 weeks after her left fallopian tube ruptured leaving her within 20 minutes of death. She lost eight pints of blood and had to have an emergency caesarian to remove her baby along with the ruptured tube.

Miss Rogers said:”As a couple we are now faced with fertility issues, and grieving for our baby, which is why myself and my mum are doing this charity walk.”

“I’m 26, losing part of your fertility is such a massive thing.”

“The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust help many woman and families like us. This is a charity close to our hearts and this walk gives my angel baby a chance to shine” Miss Rogers said.

Ectopic pregnancy occurs in one in eight pregnancies and is a condition where the baby starts to grow in the fallopian tube. It is the leading cause of death in woman in early pregnancy.

Miss Rogers, a support worker from Evesham, said: “I want to raise awareness and get it out there. A lot of people I have spoken to have never heard of ectopic pregnancy. And the chance of having it is high.”

The pair are walking from Redditch hospital, where Miss Rogers’ baby was laid to rest in the baby memorial garden, to Evesham and then in loops of Evesham over 24 hours.

The walk will begin this evening (Thursday, October 17) at 6pm and finishes tomorrow (Friday) at 6pm at the The Trumpet Pub in Evesham.

Miss Rogers said:”It’s a chance for the community to come together and support one another as our walk starts just after pregnancy and infant loss awareness week, a time when many parents come together to share their stories. This is my story. We welcome anyone who wishes to walk with us, or join us for a few miles.”

The Trumpet Pub in Evesham have organised various raffles and donated the money to Miss Rogers' cause.
