A service will be held at Ely Cathedral to show support to those who have suffered the trauma of baby loss.
It will take place this Sunday (November 17) at 6.30pm for couples and individuals affected by the loss of a baby, whether that has been during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy.
The 'Saying Goodbye' services are organised by support charity, The Mariposa Trust, which helps people affected by baby loss.
The charity was founded by Zoe and Andy Clark-Coates, who sadly suffered the loss of five babies.
The services allow people to stand with others who have experienced the similar trauma of baby loss and collectively acknowledge and remember each life lost.
