Trust plans remembrance service for babies and children who have died in the area

The Southern Health and Social Care Trust is hosting a special service to give thanks for and remember all babies and children who have died in the area.

The event is being organised by Daisy Hill Hospital’s Maternity Services Department and the Chaplaincy Team.

Anne McVey, Assistant Director of Acute Services Integrated Maternity & Women’s Health for the Southern Trust says: “We warmly invite anyone who has lost a baby or child, their family and friends to this service where we will reflect and remember them.

“You may wish to bring a flower with you as there will be an opportunity to create a floral tribute in memory of your child. Our Books of Remembrance, where the names of babies and children who have died are written, will also be on display.”

Refreshments will be served after the service and there will be an opportunity to talk with the chaplaincy team, staff from the midwifery and gynaecology service and representatives from support services, such as the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society (SANDs).

For further information please contact Anne Coyle, Bereavement Co-ordinator, SHSCT on 028 3861 3861 or Daisy Hill Hospital Maternity Staff 028 3083 5218.
