Jessica Taylor and Team Selby Spin take part in a 4 hour Zumba/Spin Challenge

Thank you so much to the amazing efforts of Jessica and her epic team (Steve, Becky,  Becky, Abbie, Amanda, Hayley Marta and Louise).    They all undertook a gruelling 4 hour Zumba and Spin session at Selby Gym to raise awareness for us which was fantastic.  Sounds like they had a great day but were glad to sit down at the end!

Sadly 18 months ago Jessica suffered an ectopic pregnancy at 8 weeks pregnant, here she tells her story.

“My tube had ruptured and I was bleeding internally and I had to undergo emergency surgery to remove my left Fallopian tube. I was told if they didn’t operate I could lose my life as well as my baby.

I didn’t know that much about ectopic pregnancy  until after this happened.

It was the most painful, scary and emotional experience of my life and in all honesty I don’t think I will ever be the same person again, but with the help of my wonderful partner, family, friends and this charity I was able to resume to some kind of normality.”

The team have raised a truly brilliant total of just over £1000 which will be invaluable to us to continue helping support women and their families who have suffered an ectopic pregnancy.
