RUH supports baby remembrance event

Families who have lost a baby are being invited to a winter baby remembrance service, organised by the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, at All Saints Church in Weston, Bath.

The event, which is being run by the RUH's Chaplaincy team and the stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands, takes place on Saturday 4 December at 2pm.

The Reverend Narinder Tegally, RUH Lead Chaplain, said: "The service is an opportunity for families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death to come together and remember at the beginning of a season that can be hard for so many.

"The service, for people of all faiths or none, will include readings, music and a chance to light a candle in memory of lost babies."

The Trust offers a full bereavement and support service for grieving parents and families, including a purpose-built Bereavement Suite that provides space and privacy they need at a particularly difficult time. As the RUH continues to follow social distancing, you must register if you wish to attend the service. To register your place, or for more information, please contact Narinder on 01225 824039 or by e-mail narinder.tegally@nhs.net

The service will also be live-streamed on the All Saints Church website – the link will be available here closer to the date of the service.
