Re­mem­brance book for ba­bies

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

SLIGO Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal has in­tro­duced a ‘Book of Re­mem­brance’ which will be avail­able for fam­i­lies to record the names of ba­bies or chil­dren who have died through mis­car­riage, still birth, shortly af­ter birth or in child­hood at the hos­pi­tal.

The book will be on display in the hos­pi­tal church on the cur­rent date and will display the de­tails of the ba­bies and chil­dren who are re­mem­bered that day.

Maria White is the Be­reave­ment Sup­port Mid­wife at the hos­pi­tal and played a key role in get­ting the book in­tro­duced. She said, “There are many ways to re­mem­ber your loss.

At Sligo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal a Chil­dren and Preg­nancy Loss Re­mem­brance Book has just been de­vel­oped. You are in­vited to in­clude your child’s or baby’s name, ir­rel­e­vant of the time they spent with us, and a brief mes­sage in the Re­mem­brance Book”.

For more in­for­ma­tion on adding an en­try to the book, please call the hos­pi­tal and re­quest to speak to the Be­reave­ment Sup­port Mid­wife.
