Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit  our JustGiving page.

We have launched an appeal to raise £60,000 for a Bereavement Suite in the maternity unit at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. 

The suite will provide a private space for parents who have experienced the tragedy of a stillbirth or the loss of their baby post-birth, where they can begin to grieve the loss of their baby. 

It will be an addition to the existing bereavement facility - the Fay Turner Suite - which will also benefit from a refurbishment. 

The money will go towards converting an existing room in the maternity department into a suitable space which will include a kitchen area and access into the memorial garden, as well as funding fixtures and furnishings for the space. 

Around 95 families a year could benefit from access to our bereavement suite. We know from the conversations we have with parents how important these facilities are - a space for mothers, partners and family to go, away from the noise and bustle of the nearby maternity ward.
