Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust and Solihull Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death charity) will be holding a special ‘Snowdrop Service’ this Christmas, for parents and families to remember babies that have been lost during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
The event will take place on Saturday 14 December at St Paul’s Church on Belchers Lane, Bordesley Green. Beginning at 4pm, it will include a special performance from Birmingham’s Town Hall Gospel Choir, winners of the first ever Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year competition.
Clare Beesley, bereavement support midwife at Heartlands Hospital, said: “Christmas can be a particularly difficult time of year for those that have lost a child, and we hope our special ‘Snowdrop Service’ with Solihull Sands will provide a comforting and peaceful setting for families to remember their loved ones. We are delighted to welcome the Town Hall Gospel Choir to the service too, who will help pay tribute to those gone too soon.”
The service will include carol singing, the lighting of remembrance candles and a number of special readings and poems.
