The Maternity Service annual Service of Remembrance for the families and friends of babies and young children who have died during pregnancy, soon after birth, or when very young, will take place at 3.00pm on Sunday, 12th October 2014. 

The staff of the Maternity Service at West Middlesex extend a welcome to all those who are mourning the loss of a baby or young child.

Sally Kelly, Bereavement Midwife for the Trust, said that:  “Acknowledgement of the death of a baby, regardless of when the loss occurred, is very important.   This Service offers a formal recognition of those babies and brings grieving parents, families and Trust staff together to offer comfort and support.  Feedback from previous years has always been very positive and parents report that it has helped them in their journey.  Some families attend the service year after year.”

The service will take place in the Multi-Faith Centre in the hospital atrium and will be followed by refreshments.
