REMEMBRANCE services are being held in memory of stillborn babies.
Baby loss and stillborn charities will be holding a Wave of Light Service on Tuesday (October 15) for all those who have lost a child before birth or in infancy.
The Lily Mae Foundation founders Ryan and Amy Jackson – who lost their daughter Lily-Mae at birth – are inviting bereaved parents, children, family and friends to join them at St Mary’s Church in Temple Balsall from 6.30pm.
Parking for St Mary’s Church can be found at Fen End Road West, Temple Balsall, B93 0AN.
The TeddyRose Foundation will also be holding a Wave of Light service at St Alphege Church on Church Hill Road in Solihull from 6.30pm on Tuesday for bereaved families and loved ones.
Mike and Trisha White’s children Teddy and Rose were born sleeping will be joining families to light candles in their children’s memory at the service.
There will be refreshments available after the service at St Alphege.
The Wave of Light service will take place at the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week, which runs from October 9 to 15, and is a chance to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
The charities hope that, as well as offering a space for remembrance, the service will also help to raise awareness of the support available to families.
