'SAYING GOODBYE' SERVICE

19 November 2017 6:30pm

Run by the Mariposa Trust.

The Saying Goodbye Services are the first national set of remembrance services for people who have lost a child at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in infancy, whether last week or 80-years ago.

Who Can Attend the Service?
 
The services are for women and men who have suffered loss, their children and their extended family and friends, whether the loss be recent or historic.
 
If you need to say goodbye to a baby or to grief, or you want to come along with a friend who needs to say goodbye, you are welcome at any of the services.
 
Why Should I Attend the Service?
 
Loss at any stage is traumatic. Early loss is often not acknowledged or discussed, with commemorative services seldom taking place, whilst services for babies who are stillborn or lost in early years, are usually conducted while parents are in a fog of grief and pain.
 
The services will give you the opportunity to stand with other people 'who know' the pain of losing a child.
 
Come and rejoice in your baby's life, grieve, remember and formally Say Goodbye.
