Service of remembrance for babies and young children

21 September 2017

West Middlesex University Hospital’s annual Service of Remembrance for babies and young children will take place at 3.00pm on Sunday 8th October 2017.

West Middlesex University Hospital’s annual Service of Remembrance for babies and young children will take place at 3.00pm on Sunday 8th October 2017. 

The service will commemorate babies and young children who have died during pregnancy, soon after birth or when very young. Staff at West Middlesex’s Queen Mary Maternity Unit extend a welcome to all families, friends who have lost a baby or young child. 

Sally Kelly, Bereavement Midwife at the hospital said: “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 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 in Rumbles Restaurant.
