Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Neonatal death

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. The services and prayers provided here are an important part of that pastoral care. We hope these are helpful for those involved in this pastoral ministry.
