Baby Memorial Service

A special service is being held for parents and relatives who have experienced the loss of a baby, or a miscarriage at Maidstone Hospital or Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

The annual Baby Memorial Service, which is still being held virtually this year, will be uploaded to MTW’s YouTube channel. The service, which will be led by the hospital chaplain, Reverend Stephen Baker, will also be available to view at any time after the date of upload.

The purpose of the service is to set aside a little time to share thoughts and light candles in memory of those babies who have meant so much but who we no longer see. For some families it is a time to remember a recent loss, for others it is an opportunity to remember a baby who died many years ago. All are welcome to join this virtual service.

We would like to offer bereaved parents the opportunity to have the name of their baby read out during the service. If you would like to include the name of your baby, please email before 12pm on Tuesday 8th March 2022 as the service will be pre-recorded.

For further information, please contact the Reverend Stephen Baker on (01892) 635438 or email:
