Euryl Howells, Senior Chaplain at Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “This service of remembrance is an important moment in the year when parents and families who has been affected by the very sad experience of babies who have passed away.

“Experiencing the loss of a baby is an incredibly painful experience, and we hope this service allows parents and their families and staff to reflect and remember in a space surrounded by support and love, as they continue on their journey of separation and grief.

“The loss of a baby is overwhelming and emotional, but to meet others who are experiencing loss in a similar way can be helpful.”
