Remembering Babies and Children Who Have Died Before or After Birth

26th September 2023

Parents, friends and relatives are invited to a Service of Remembrance in memory of children and babies who have died before or after birth. The service will take place on 11 October 2023 at 7.30 pm in the Stormont Hotel, Upper Newtownards Road, Belfast.

The service is an important private and public way for bereaved parents and their families to join with staff to commemorate the children and babies who have died. Hospital chaplains will lead the service, with bereaved parents taking part, remembering their babies through poems, prayers and bible readings.

Those attending are invited to bring a flower in memory of their beloved baby or child who died. Due to the sensitive nature of the service it is requested that adults only attend.

This service has been devised primarily from a Christian tradition. Those from other faith groups or those who have no formal faith are welcome to attend. If you have any spiritual needs which you would like to discuss, please contact Rev Don Gamble, Lead Chaplain on Tel: (028) 9041 3870.
