The annual Withybush Baby Service will be held at St Luke’s Chapel in Withybush Hospital on September 11th at 6.30pm.
The service will include hymns, readings and poems, and little ones will be remembered with memory cards, which will be given out to be placed on the altar.
Gill Llewellyn, Bereavement Officer at Withybush Hospital, said: “Acknowledgement of the death of a baby, regardless of when the loss occurred, is very important. We hope that this will provide parents and family members the support and space they need to remember the baby or child that they have lost, and ease some of the pain that they feel.
“The service will also provide staff who have provided support to families, with the opportunity for peace and reflection.”
All are welcome to attend this service which will remember loved and lost babies from Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and further afield. Refreshments will be provided after the service.
