Marking Your Loss

The loss of a baby during any stage of pregnancy is a deeply upsetting time. After your loss, you may want to find some special ways of remembering your baby and marking their life. 

Baby Loss Certificates

You are now able to request a certificate in memory of your baby if they were born under 24 weeks gestation, and were not born alive. Certificates are optional, free of charge, and can be backdated (currently to September 2018, but to be extended in the future). You can request a certificate online by following the link below.
