Support for families

As in all maternity units, George Eliot's maternity unit unfortunately occasionally experiences incidences where a woman will experience a pregnancy loss. 

The unit include bereavement link midwives who always strive to provide a gold standard of care to those families who experience pregnancy loss.  These are passionate about making a difference to anyone that has experienced a bereavement .

Most parents experiencing pregnancy loss will feel a strong desire  to cherish and remember  their baby and we always suggest and assist families respecting their choices/wishes.  All parents are offered memory boxes regardless of gestation as all pregnancies are important.

“Pregnancy loss is always something, it is never nothing and it could be everything
