Resources for families experiencing pregnancy loss

This may be helpful for readers following the discussion of pregnancy loss on BBC Radio Ulster’s Talkback programme today.

The Church of Ireland has prepared a service and a certificate of naming for children whose lives end in pregnancy or shortly after birth.  As a Church, we are conscious of the need for particular pastoral care for the parents and families of children dying near the time of birth.

We hope these are helpful for everyone involved, and they are available at this link.
