The Snowdrop Appeal is hoping to raise £120,000 for the creation of a  new maternity beareavment suite at Scarborough Hospital.

Whilst most parents experience pregnancy and birth as a happy and joyous occasion, this is sadly not always the case. When parents receive bad news about their pregnancy or baby, all their hopes and dreams are taken away and the effect of their grief can be devastating and overwhelming. It is essential they are cared for in an environment where they can be private, comfortable and spend time together. The quality of care parents receive in these circumstances can have long lasting effects.

Scarborough Maternity Unit currently has no dedicated facilities to look after parents in these sad circumstances and they're often amongst parents with healthy babies.

We would like to create a special suite with the help and advice from bereaved parents who have sadly had to deal with such devastating news. The new facilities will include a sleeping area, lounge and bathroom, where parents and families can be together to comfort and support each other during such a difficult time.
