Babies' Remembrance Service in Scarborough

Scarborough Hospital

Published by Jon Burke at 12:04pm 20th June 2018.

Parents and families who have suffered a loss are being invited to attend an annual remembrance service, which will take place at St Luke’s Church in Scarborough today at 7.30pm.

This is the 25th 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 special service is for families or for anyone who has experienced  the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or following birth,  It is a brief opportunity to remember their little ones’’

The invitation, of course, is open to all family members, not just parents, but siblings and grandparents, anyone who has suffered this painful experience.”

 

The Reverend Chris Hayes, Hospital Chaplain will conduct the short service at St Luke’s Church, on Stepney Drive. The service will take around 40 minutes and will involve the lighting of candles and the distribution of flowers.

Refreshments will be served at St Lukes following the service and maternity staff will be on hand throughout and after the service for anyone in need of support. Families may want to take the opportunity to visit The Woodlands crematorium following the service also.
