Babies remembrance service
Parents and families who have suffered the loss of a baby are being invited to attend an annual remembrance service, which will take place at St Luke’s Church in Scarborough on Wednesday 12 July 2017.
This is the 24th year that maternity services at Scarborough Hospital have organised the event, which gives bereaved families the opportunity to come together to remember babies they have lost.
Community Midwife, Sue Finnigan said: “This event is for families who have suffered the loss of a baby to remember their loved ones and share their experiences with others. Anyone who has lost a baby at any stage of their pregnancy is welcome to attend.
“The invitation is also open to any family members, not just parents, but siblings and grandparents who have gone through this painful experience.”
The Reverend Chris Hayes, Hospital Chaplain will conduct the short service at St Luke’s Church, on Stepney Drive in Scarborough, on Wednesday 12 July, starting at 7.30pm. The service will take around 40 minutes and will involve the lighting of candles and the distribution of flowers.
There will then be an opportunity for people to visit the crematorium on Woodlands Drive and refreshments will be served after the service at St Luke’s. Maternity staff will be on hand throughout the service for anyone in need of support.
