Building work to bring a new Maternity Bereavement Suite to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn (QEH) which will provide a dedicated facility to support families who have experienced the tragedy of baby loss is underway.
Named The Butterfly Suite by the local community, the facility will provide a dedicated space for bereaved parents who experience this unimaginable loss either during pregnancy or shortly after birth. The quiet and private area will enable parents time to create precious memories with their baby, in a safe and comfortable environment separate from the clinical setting.
The appeal for a Maternity Bereavement Suite at QEH was launched by the Trust in early 2020 and the redevelopment received the go-ahead following funds raised through the generous support of the local community and the Trust’s own charity
In order to make the suite as homely and comforting as possible for families, fundraising efforts continue to enable the purchase of much-needed furnishings. You can give to the appeal online or send cheques payable to ‘Maternity Bereavement Suite Appeal’ to the Finance Department, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gayton Road, King’s Lynn, PE30 4ET.
