Walk of remembrance for bereaved parents
The first session will take place from 3.00pm - 5.00pm and the second, from 6.00pm - 8.00pm in the chapel at the NNUH.
Both these sessions are held in conjunction with the Norwich Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society (SANDS) and the hospital chaplaincy and is a time when parents and families can come together for mutual support and comfort as they remember the babies that they have lost. At the sessions the books of remembrance will be on view and there will be a chance to talk with other parents, any of the Chaplains, Sally Spears the representative of SANDS and Mrs Irene Howard who does the calligraphy for the Book of Remembrance.
Anyone who has lost a baby and their family and friends are welcome to these services and there will also be an opportunity for individual acts of remembrance.
Sally Spears of Norwich SANDS said: As a bereaved parent myself I find that a service of this kind not only recognises that my baby had a life and is still remembered, but also gives me a chance to meet other families who have been in the same situation.
Anyone who has been affected in this way and would like to know more can either call the NNUH chaplains on 01603 287470 or Sally Spears from Norwich SANDS on 01603 412827.
