Bereavement Suites and Counselling Room

Whilst for many the pregnancy journey is a joyous, momentous occasion, the reality will be different for some of our patients. Some may experience difficulties throughout their pregnancy and some may even face losses. Recognising the emotionally wrought processes, we aim to make these rooms look and feel very different to a typical birthing suite. We aim to place soft furnishings, a sofa bed, a television, a fridge, calming softening lighting and soothing artwork. We aim to make this space look less clinical to support the families.

Charmaine’s story

Charmaine sadly lost her first baby in the early stages. This is a very personal journey as to how everyone deals with loss. Both her and her husband required different support on this journey and the midwifery team were exceptional in their care from that first scary scan, to the conversation after, to the after care. This is her opportunity to give back to those departments. Charmaine will be sponsoring a unique glass butterfly in support of this appeal.

Sponsor a butterfly coming soon.
