Support organisations

There are a number of organisations who provide support for anyone who has suffered the loss of a baby:

The Tree of Remembrance

The Tree of Remembrance was commissioned by the Ipswich Hospital Baby Bereavement Support Group to offer local bereaved parents the opportunity to honour their baby in a simple, quiet way.  Each leaf bears the name and date of birth of a baby lost in pregnancy or the neonatal period.

Each brass leaf costs £40 and is paid for through continuous fundraising events held by the volunteers of the Baby Bereavement Support Group.  You can access an application form through the link below.
