Although it may feel like you are alone in your grief at this strange and distressing time, there are others who understand what you are going through. The online service will be a welcoming and warm space to reflect and share what is special to you about your baby together with other bereaved parents who will be honouring their baby. You may wish for your family and friends to join you for the service as a special way to grieve together.

The platform we will use for the online service is Zoom and you and your guests can join via computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. 

After the candle ceremony we will invite you to share details of your baby, with the option to say a short statement about your baby or read a poem special to you.

Further details will be emailed to you on registration including an Order of Service.

If you have questions please contact Margaret Polacska on [email protected]
