Awarding-winning service expands support for bereaved parents

An award-winning bereavement service has launched a support group to provide further care to families who have experienced the loss of a baby.

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust’s (NMUH) Bluebell Bereavement Support Service is a group of healthcare professionals and bereaved parents who offer informal support meetings for anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or one year following birth.

The launch was attended by Catherine West, MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, Kate Anolue,  Deputy Mayor of Enfield and Stephen Mann, Mayor of Haringey, as well as members of the NMUH management team and staff from the award-winning bereavement service.

Michelle Lynch, bereavement midwife at the Edmonton hospital said: “It’s fantastic that we have this support group for bereaved parents.

“The loss of a child is a devastating event for parents and their families, yet pregnancy loss still remains a taboo and people find it difficult to talk about leaving parents feeling isolated and alone. 

“Everyone experiences loss and grief in different ways, but talking about it and listening to others who have been though similar circumstances can help with the grieving.

“It is important those affected are made aware of the options available to them for on-going practical and emotional support for however long they may need it helping them on the road towards recovery.”

Parents who experience the loss of a baby during pregnancy or during the first year following birth who have used the hospital’s maternity or paediatric services will be offered support by the Bluebell Bereavement Support Service.  Parents can also refer themselves to the service or can access it through an Enfield or Haringey health professional.
