Baby Loss Service At Sunderland Minster

A special service of remembrance, for families who've lost a baby, is being held in Sunderland later.

The 'Saying Goodbye' service starts at 3pm and is the first one to be held in Sunderland.

They are for anyone who has lost a baby during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy. 

This service is part of around twenty services in 2016 in the UK, US and France. 

It is hoped that people from across Sunderland, the North East and further afield will take an hour from their day to go along and share their grief with others who have had similar experiences. 

The services aim to remember and acknowledge the lives lost or cut short in a moving and reflective service. 

It's open to people of all faiths or no faith and feature music, poetry, personal stories and more. 

283,000 babies are lost each year - it's estimated 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage or still birth.
