Perinatal Bereavement & Palliative Care NORTHSIDE HOSPITAL
Northside Hospital Memorial Service
We are aware of how important it is to remember your baby and how healing rituals can be to the wounded hearts of those who grieve. For this reason, H.E.A.R.T.strings Perinatal Bereavement & Palliative Care joins the Northside Hospital chaplains as they sponsor a memorial service on the first Sunday in May and the first Sunday in November to honor the memory of the babies for whom we have cared and who have died during the previous six months. Our service is a non-sectarian candle-lighting service with music, poems, and readings and is held at the Northside Hospital Atlanta campus.
This ceremony offers the opportunity to have a special time of dedication and reflection. Babies will be honored by having their names read during the service. Parents are encouraged to bring a flower to be incorporated into an arrangement as a part of the ceremony. A reception with refreshments will follow the ceremony. If you would like more information or would like to attend, please contact the chaplain team at (404) 851-8754.
A Special Thank You
We are grateful to the Northside Hospital Spiritual Health & Education department for providing this important ritual for our families, twice a year. The chaplains are an integral part of our team, supporting families during their stay and as they come to this service in remembrance of their babies.
