Families who have lost a baby are being invited to a special Winter Baby Remembrance Service, organised by the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust and the charity Sands.
This service takes place on Saturday 2 December at 1pm at The Weston Hub, Penn Hill Road, Weston, Bath.
The Reverend Prebendary Narinder Tegally, RUH Lead Chaplain, said: “This service is an opportunity for families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death to come together and remember at the beginning of a season that is hard for so many.
“The service, for people of all faiths or none, will include readings, music, and an act of remembrance for our special babies and the opportunity to place an ornament bearing your baby’s name on the Christmas tree.”
If you would like to attend the service, please email Narinder – firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to attend in person, you can email Narinder with your baby’s name so it can be written on an ornament and placed on the Christmas tree for you.
After the service, the Christmas tree will be on display in the RUH’s Spiritual Care Centre until 6 January 2024.
The Trust offers a full bereavement and support service for grieving parents and families, including a purpose-built bereavement suite that provides space and privacy they need at a particularly difficult time.
