A peaceful and private place to say goodbye


Family Rooms within maternity units offer parents the opportunity to spend further precious time with and prepare to say goodbye to their baby in peaceful and private accommodation. They are ideally positioned away from the main wards but with maternity staff and medical facilities on hand. Family members and friends may also visit if desired.

Family rooms are the most special place; a place where we can't change the sadness of what has happened but we can and have changed the feel and the sanctuary of the space. Time spent in our family rooms making the most precious of memories, time together as a family, with family and friends, time that can never be replaced will now be time spent in the most perfect surroundings.

Your support has helped us to create Family Rooms in many hospitals, take a look at some of the projects completed to date.
