"A Time to Remember" memorial service

Story posted/last updated: 01 October 2019

On Sunday 13 October University Hospitals Birmingham will be holding their annual Baby Loss Memorial Service, "A Time to Remember".’ A time we come together to share and remember with love, those whose babies have died through pregnancy loss or soon after birth. During the service there will be an opportunity to light a candle, write a message on our Memory Tree and listen to reflective music.

"A Time to Remember" gives parents the chance to meet other families and collectively share and remember babies who have sadly died through stillbirth, miscarriage or neonatal death.

Clare Beesley, bereavement support midwife at the Trust, said: β€œThe loss of a baby can be a devastating, life changing experience for any family to go through and we hope this service can offer a peaceful setting where families can come together to remember their baby. Many families who have attended over the years have found comfort in being able to share their loss with other people who have gone through a similar experience to them. We warmly welcome anyone who has experienced such a loss.”

"Time to Remember" takes place at this time every year to coincide with National Baby Loss Awareness Week, which runs from 9 – 15 October. The service starts at 2pm on Sunday 13 October at St Barnabas Church Centre, High Street, Erdington.

If you would like to attend or would like further information, please contact our bereavement team:
