Bereavement Support Service Following Miscarriage

When a baby dies as a result of miscarriage, parents can often feel overwhelmed by their sadness. The impact on you and your partner can be very difficult to come to terms with. We extend our sympathy to you and appreciate that the days and weeks following miscarriage can be confusing and difficult.

Support

The doctors and nurses in the Gynaecology ward and Early Pregnancy Unit are experienced in helping and supporting you during this difficult time.

The Bereavement Support Midwife specialises in supporting parents whose babies have died and is there to support and help you

She will be able to provide extra support and guide you with the decisions and arrangements that you need to make at this time. Everyone has individual needs following bereavement. You may not wish to talk to anyone for weeks or months.

If you would like to speak to the Bereavement Support Midwife, you can ask your nurse or midwife to refer you or you can refer yourself.
