The Chaplaincy department and the Midwives teamed up to
organise and run a special remembrance day in the Hospital Chapel.
Talhat Mughal, Lead Chaplain, wanted to give his thanks to everyone who
attended on October 21 at the annual baby loss memorial service.
Talhat said it was a great success with around 50 people
joining in. “We had lots of moments of reflection and remembrance throughout
the service including candle lighting, writing messages on paper leaves and a
balloon release by the entrance of the hospital.
“The day finished with tea, coffee and cakes, allowing an
opportunity for everyone to chat and share experiences and memories. One
participant who has been coming for many years shared: ‘Thank you for a great service, best one so far. It’s a really important
service for me, even years on after losing my baby, as it gives me an
opportunity to remember them’.”
We look forward to next year’s event.
