Being part of a family room project at Nottingham City hospital where Lola was stillborn was an extremely important project to our SiMBA Ambassador and founder of the Lola Commons fund for SiMBA, Lola’s mummy Lisa Hague and her fiance Kris Commons.
The new Serenity bereavement suite was opened on the 8th of December in the maternity ward of Nottingham City Hospital. The project was co-funded by The Lola Commons Fund for SiMBA, Forever Stars, Sands and the Nottingham University Hospitals’ (NUH) Midwifery Council. The £140,000 suite has two rooms: one with a double-bed and en suite bathroom and the other with a kitchen.
Bereavement midwife Christa Burgess said:
“I am very proud to be able to offer families a dedicated bereavement suite at both campuses. Families can spend time with their baby, make precious memories and begin to grieve their loss while being supported by the midwives, chaplains and bereavement staff.”
