Portiuncula University Hospital will hold a Service of Remembrance on Monday 13 February in the hospital chapel at 7.30pm.

The hospital is inviting parents and their families who have experienced bereavement through the death of a child or who have lost a baby through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, still birth or after birth.

Families are welcome to join other families for light refreshments afterwards.

Deirdre Naughton, Director of Midwifery at the hospital, said: “This service offers parents who have experienced bereavement an opportunity to reflect on their grief journey through symbol, music and prayer.

“Parents who have attended this service in the past have shared with us that they have found it to be a time of healing and comfort.”
