Annual Baby Remembrance Service 2016: Small footprints on our hearts

A service aimed at providing support for those who have been affected by the loss of a baby is to be held by hospital chaplains this autumn.

The service takes place in the Chapel at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on 30th September at 7pm and is open to anybody who wants to attend.

As well as being an opportunity for people to remember their own baby, it also offers a time of peace and reflection for our staff who provide support for those who have experienced the loss of a baby.

Losses may be recent or have happened many years ago.
Bereavement support midwives and other members of staff will be available following the service.

These services are an opportunity for you to remember your baby and to meet other people who understand because they have also lost babies that they loved.

The service is conducted by the hospital chaplains and supported by other members of staff who will be around to talk afterwards. 
Although they follow a broadly Christian pattern of worship, it doesn’t matter what faith background people have. All are welcome to attend and each year there are a large number of people who come along because they appreciate a safe and open place in which they can acknowledge and remember their children.

On behalf of our Organ Donation Committee, we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped with the stand or came along to our Organ Donation stand at Gloucester Day on Saturday.

It was a bit wet and windy at times, but we had lots of interest from those who are interested in joining the OD register as well as joining our OD Committee's amazing team of volunteers.

Our volunteers Geoff and Lily (also pictured) will have a stand at Kings Walk this Friday, so if you are shopping, do pop over and say hello!

Would you take an organ if you needed one?

We are supporting Organ Donation Week (5th - 11th Sept) and would like to encourage you share your stories and to to sign up to the NHS OD register at or call 0300 123 2323 to register your wishes.

Remember to tell your friends and family about your decision too!
