Refurbished suite for bereaved families at Nobles

Tue, 16 Apr 2019

A sanctuary which offers parents who have lost a baby a comfortable space to grieve and spend time with their little one has been re-launched at Noble’s Hospital.

The Forget-Me-Not suite on the maternity ward has been designed so that bereaved families can gather in privacy at a time of distress. The facility has been refurbished as a home-from-home, offering a peaceful environment with a Manx theme.

A new addition to the suite is a cold cot, allowing parents to be with their baby after a loss. This has been provided with generous support from Friends of Noble’s and Abigail’s Footsteps, while donations from many other charities have helped fund the makeover.

Staff are hosting a special event at the Forget-me-Not suite to thank supporters, and show them what has been created.
