Description

Gynaecology staff and bereavement midwives at The Royal Oldham Hospital are gearing up for Baby Loss Awareness Week in October, with some great plans to help families remember their angel babies.

A number of events and activities have been planned including a baby memorial service, a petal shower and a wave of light.

Wave of Light - Dexter's Garden - 15th October, 6.45pm (for 7pm start)

We will be joining SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death charity) in their global Wave of Light. The Wave of Light is an opportunity for families and friends to commemorate all the babies who lit up our lives for a short time and sadly died too soon. The Wave of Light will take place in Dexter's Garden from 7pm. Families that are unable to attend an officially organised event can get involved by doing their own wave of light at home.

Everyone is welcome to attend all these events, so please show your support.

Please note that Dexter's Garden has been relocated from it's original location. It is now located on the other side of the stone wall next to the Diabetes Centre on Westhulme Avenue.
