CRAIGAVON Area Hospital is hosting a special service to give thanks for and remember babies and children who have died.
The service will take place on Sunday, May 19, at 3pm in the Lecture Theatre, Medical Education Centre, Craigavon Area Hospital, (main hospital building).
The event is being organized by the Hospital Maternity Services Department and the Chaplaincy Team.
Anne McVey, Assistant Director of Acute Services Integrated Maternity & Women’s Health 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 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.”
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) and the Miscarriage Association.
