This Sunday, 9 October, we will be holding a gathering of remembrance event for families who have experienced pregnancy loss or the death of a baby. The event, which is held every six months, is the first to be resumed following a pause due to COVID-19. It provides the opportunity for families to gather and commemorate the lives of their babies and is open to families of all faiths and beliefs. Sunday also marks the start of Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The event will include readings, reflection and the reading of names of children who have passed. Representatives from across our Maternity Services and local communities will be in attendance.

The Gathering of Remembrance will be held at Admaston House on Wellington Road, TF50BN, children are welcome and activities will be available throughout the gathering for them.
