Our hospital cares for over 2,000 grieving mums and dads every year who may have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.
Every loss is a devastating and uniquely personal experience, but at the moment the space in which our expert bereavement midwives have to hold heartbreaking conversations doesnt reflect the significance of each familys loss.
News is delivered in cramped quiet rooms, often on the maternity ward or in busy outpatient areas, and our patients repeatedly speak of feeling rushed and of having nowhere to go after receiving devastating news.
Woodland House will change this. It will be a brand-new, purpose-built, centre away from the hustle and bustle of the main hospital, where families can spend time together in safe, secure and serene surroundings before they feel ready to face the world again.
We need to raise £3.5million to make Woodland House a reality.
