Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Maternity Bereavement Suite

CCA-M-Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Maternity Bereavement Suite

Midlands

In February 2017, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals launched an appeal to raise money for an additional bereavement suite and to soundproof two rooms in the delivery suite to enable them to care for bereaved families in an appropriate, safe and comfortable environment.  The facilities are for families to have quiet time to create everlasting memories with their baby, supported by the bereavement midwives and delivery suite staff. The support from families that they have cared for and the local community has been overwhelming in raising the funds and the work is now complete and the additional space is in use and we will be having an official opening in the coming months. They have noticed with the additional bereavement suite that families are staying longer with them, which can only help and prepare them with their difficult journey ahead.

“The care that the Maternity Bereavement Suite provides is outstanding. The facilities are vital to families in the Wyre Forest and countywide who have suffered the pain of baby loss.”
