Remembering babies & children who have died before after birth

29/09/2016

Parents, friends and relatives are invited to a Service of Remembrance in memory of children and babies who have died before or after birth. The service will take place on 12 October 2016 at 7.30pm in the Recreation Hall, Ulster Hospital, Dundonald.

The service is an important private and public way for bereaved parents and their families to join with staff and to have the opportunity to commemorate the children and babies who have died. Hospital chaplains will lead the service, with bereaved parents taking part in remembering their baby through poems, prayers and bible readings.

Those attending are invited to bring a flower in memory of the baby or child who died. For sensitivity, it is requested that adults only attend.

This service has been devised primarily from a Christian tradition. Those from other faith groups or those who have no formal faith are welcome to attend. If you have any spiritual needs which you would like to discuss, please contact Rev Don Gamble, Lead Chaplain on Tel: (028) 9048 4511 Ext 89370.
