Craigavon Area Hospital is hosting a special service to give thanks for and remember babies and children who have died following miscarriage, still birth, neonatal or infant death.

The service will take place on Sunday 13 May 2018 at 3.00 pm in the Seagoe Parish Centre, Portadown.

 

 

The short inter-denominational service will provide an opportunity to remember all babies that have passed away in any circumstances and will include prayers, poems, and music.

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

Speaking to Newry Times, Patricia McStay, Head of Midwifery for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust explained, “We warmly invite anyone who has lost a baby or child, their family and friends to this service where we will reflect and remember their loved ones in a sympathetic and understanding environment. 

 

 

“Some families will come to remember a recent loss. Others will come to remember a baby who was lost many years ago. Everyone is welcome to attend.

“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,” she added.

 

 

Refreshments will be served after the service and there will be an opportunity to talk with the chaplaincy team and staff from the midwifery and gynaecology service.
