Baby memorial service

Each year The Chaplains at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust invite parents living with a pregnancy loss or the death of a baby to gather to remember their child at special services.

The Chaplains based at Darlington Memorial Hospital will be hosting this year's Darlington event at Elm Ridge Methodist Church, at 3pm, on Sunday 6th November 2022.

Kevin Tromans, Senior Chaplain, at County Durham & Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, said, "Our services of remembrance and thanksgiving are for anyone who has been affected by this very sad experience, including wider families and regardless of whether the loss was recent or in the more distant past.

"The service is an opportunity for families who have lost a baby or infant in any way, but especially those who have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal loss, to gather together to reflect, and to remember their little one.  Along with similar services we also hold in Durham and Bishop Auckland, this is one of the most important events in the Trust's chaplaincy calendar."

For information about future events in Bishop Auckland and Durham, please contact the Chaplains at Bishop Auckland Hospital on 01388 455451 and University Hospital of North Durham on 0191 333 2183.

'The treatment I have received from all the staff has been excellent and could you extend my thanks to them all. A very thankful and relieved patient'.
