The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

SLIGO Univer­sity Hospi­tal will hold a Re­mem­brance Ser­vice for all be­reaved par­ents and fam­i­lies who have ex­pe­ri­enced the loss of a child.

The ser­vice will take place in the Out­pa­tients De­part­ment on Level 3 on Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 22nd at 7.30pm Par­ents who have ex­pe­ri­enced the death of a child, baby or preg­nancy loss at any stage, to­gether with their fam­ily, friends and hospi­tal staff, are all wel­come to at­tend this ser­vice.

Speak­ing ahead of the ser­vice, Di­rec­tor of Mid­wifery Ju­liana Henry said: “The death of a baby or child is recog­nised as one of the most dif­fi­cult be­reave­ments in life and some­thing which has a life­long im­pact on par­ents and fam­i­lies.

“This ser­vice will be for re­flec­tion and re­mem­brance, and to sup­port those peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced or been touched by this loss. The re­mem­brance ser­vice pro­vides a space for staff, the par­ents and ex­tended fam­i­lies to re­flect on the love and care they have shown to fam­i­lies who are be­reaved and to ac­knowl­edge and ex­press their own grief and sad­ness for the lives that were lost.” For more in­for­ma­tion call 071-9174634 / 9174452
