In 2013 in the UK, one in every 137 babies was either stillborn or died in the first 4 weeks of life

Here in N. Ireland, over 3 babies a week are stillborn or die in the first 4 weeks of life.

We support all bereaved parents who have lost their babies, before, during or shortly after birth.

Snowdrop Walk

Snowdrop Walk

We have been asked by our friends from the Northern Trust Bereavement Team to let you know about their annual Snowdrop event.

Snowdrop Walk

This event allows you to plant Snowdrops in the woods within the Castle grounds and has been running now for a number of years and many parents have  found it to be a comforting and moving experience. As with our own Christmas service, it provides an opportunity to meet with other parents over a cup of tea/coffee/soup.
