Since 2012, 80 services have been held across the UK and North America, allowing thousands of people to remember the babies they have lost. The services are completely free to attend, and are open to anyone of any faith/no faith.
The services are for women and men who have suffered loss of a baby, as well as for their children/their extended family and friends; whether the loss be recent or historic.
All are welcome regardless of the type of loss they have experienced, so whether they have been through early or late miscarriage, missed miscarriage, an ectopic or molar pregnancy, still birth, early infant loss or any other type of baby or child loss.
Loss at any stage is traumatic. Early loss is often not acknowledged or discussed, with commemorative services seldom taking place, whilst services for babies who are stillborn or lost in early years, are usually conducted while parents are in a fog of grief and pain.
If you need to say goodbye to a baby or to grief, or you want to come along with a friend who needs to say goodbye, you are welcome at any of the services. Come and rejoice in your baby’s life, grieve, remember and formally Say Goodbye.
