Daisy Hill Hospital is hosting a special service to give thanks for and remember babies and children who have died from the area.

The service will take place on Sunday 19th November at 3pm in the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre (Adjacent to Newry Town Hall).



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

Speaking to Newry Times, Patricia McStay, Head of Midwifery and Gynaecology for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust said, “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,” she added.



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)
