A service of remembrance for families who have lost a baby

A service of remembrance will take place in the Chapel of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on Sunday 7th November at 3.00pm for anyone who has lost a baby either during pregnancy or after birth.

This service is 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 comport as they remember the babies that they have lost.

Anyone who has lost a baby is welcome to this service and there will also be an opportunity for individual acts of remembrance and a chance to view the memorial book held in the Hospital Chapel, Level 1, Centre Block.

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”.
