Losing a Baby

The death of a baby before or shortly after birth

The loss of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth is a devastating loss: not only the loss of the real person who has been, but also all of what might have been.

Each year the Central Hospital of Luxembourg arranges a commemoration service for families who have lost a child through stillbirth or shortly after birth. It is usually on the first Saturday of October. It is open to parents, siblings, grandparents and friends; indeed, all who mourn the loss of a baby.

In 2019 it will take place at 15:00 on Saturday 5th October in the Church at Roodt/Syre.  Further details can be found by clicking here.
