Bereavement Service

Together we care and remember

The loss of a baby or child is a deeply sad and upsetting time.

We are a team of bereavement specialists here to support you and your family through this difficult time. For many families, this is the first experience of bereavement so we are here with emotional and practical support to help you.

We hope that the information gathered here is a gentle support.

Care at Birmingham Women's Hospital

If we’ve missed you while you were in hospital, then please contact us so we can have a conversation about the support you may need.

Making memories with your baby is an experience to cherish when timeDandelions graphic together has been so short.  We can help with photographs, with memory bags and memory boxes that hold special things for you from your beloved baby.

We can organise support from the multi-faith Chaplaincy, and can also provide a blessing or naming ceremony for your baby.

There is a quiet family room where you may choose to spend time with your baby after leaving the hospital.

To make things a little easier, we can assist you with certificates, registration and funeral arrangements.

We can also help to explain the need for any further hospital appointments or investigations needed.



We have a remembrance book, where you can choose to make a personal entry for your baby. The page is opened on your baby’s anniversary date each year.

We have two remembrance services each year where everyone is welcome.

In the springtime, we have a non-denominational service called ‘Forever in our Hearts’ which has messages from different faiths and cultures.

In the autumn there is a service held in the local parish church ‘Celebrating Brief Lives’.
